Holland Family 
Makes $100,000 
Gift to Elon 



Members of the family of the late 
Shirley Thomas Holland of Windsor, Va., 
have pledged $100,000 to Elon College in 
memory of their husband and father who 
served for more than 30 years on the col- 
lege's board of trustees. 

The gift comes as part of the col- 
lege's *5.7 million PRIDE U campaign. 
In recognition of the gift, the Elon 
Board of Trustees executive committee 
has voted to name the president's 
home "Holland House." 

Those of the Holland family par- 
ticipating in the memorial gift are Mrs. 
Holland and sons, Dr. Clarence A. 
Holland of Virginia Beach, Va.; Dr. 
William E. Holland of Midlothian, 
Va., and Sen. Richard J. Holland of 
Windsor. The funds will be used for 
capita! unrestricted expenditures as a 
part of the PRIDE II campaign. 




Shirley T. Holland 

Kunds raised m the campaign will go 
to the college's endowment scholar- 
ships and physical plant improvements 
including a new fine arts classroom 
building. 

The late Mr. Holland served as a 
trustee emeritus of the college from 
1946 until the time of his death in 
May 1983. He was a student at the 
college prior to World War 1. Mr. 
Holland was a leading businessman in 
Windsor. He helped organize the 
Farmers Bank of Windsor in 1919 and 
served as chief executive until 1968 
when his son, Richard J. Holland, was 
elected president. The elder Holland 
then continued to serve as chairman of 
the bank's board of directors. He also 
was president of the Shirley T. 
Holland Insurance Agency and served 
on the Windsor Town Council. 

Mr. Holland was veteran of two 
decades of service in the Virginia 
House of Delegates, representing Isle of 
Wight and Nansemond counties and 



Suffolk in the legislature. He was 
chairman of the House Insurance and 
Banking Committee and sponsored a 
number of major banking bills during 
his tenure. 

He also introduced the bill that 
created the Virginia Industrial 
Development Corp. and served as 
secretary and director of the corpora- 
tion. Another of his bills enables state 
employees, including teachers, to retire 
at age 60. 

After leaving the legislature in 1966, 
Mr. Holland was appointed by Gov. 
Mills E. Godwin, Jr. to do legislative 
liaison work during the General 
Assembly sessions. He was credited by 
Governor Godwin with being in- 
strumental in upgrading public educa- 
tion, creating the community college 
system and in getting the state retail 
sales tax bill passed,. 

"Few persons have given more of 
themselves to Elon College than 
Shirley Holland," said President Fred 
Young, "tn addition to his leadership, 
he had the longest record of annual 
giving to the college, having con- 
tributed every year since records were 
kept. We are pleased to have this visi- 
ble tribute to Shirley Holland on the 
Elon Campus." 



Elon Tuition 
Remains Low 



While the cost of a private college 
education continues to increase in 
North Carolina, Elon College has 
managed to keep tuition low. A recent 
comparison among 18 similar colleges 
and universities in N.C. shows Elon to 
be third from the bottom in tuition 
and fees. 

The figures come from a recent issue 
of "The Chronicle of Higher Educa- 
tion" and were collected by the Col- 
lege Board for a survey, " The College 
Cost Book, 1984-85." Most colleges 
and universities in the state par- 
ticipated in the survey. 

Elon's tuition and fees of $3,290 for 
the 1984-85 school year ranked just 
above those of two other N.C. colleges 
when compared with private, coeduca- 
tional, four-year, predominantly white 
institutions. Fifteen similar colleges and 
universities in the state charged higher 
tuition and fees than Elon. 

The figures range from a low of 
$2,800 to a high of $7,681. Elon's cost 
of $3,290 is well below the average 
cost of $4,442. All North Carolina 
residents receive a $750 legislative tui- 
tion grant, reducing Elon's tuition for 
in-state students to $2,540. 

Elon College President Fred Young 
said the college maintains a low tuition 
through two primary programs - a cost 
consciousness on the part of all Elon 
employees and an aggressive fund- rais- 
ing plan. 

"First, and most important, Eton 
College has maintained a balanced 
budget for over 20 years," Young said, 
"by making a conscientious effort to 
keep expenses as low as possible. Our 
faculty and staff work hard to make 
Elon affordable. 




Smile when you say Elon! Tlie 1985 Elon Phonathon -wai a success as 
alumni, parents and friends made pledges in record numbers. Aiumni respond- 
ed enthiisiasnadly (o the "Let's Beat Davidson and Wake Forest Challenge," 
and, if all pledges are paid, Elon may well become the leader among the 
state's private colleges in alumni participation. Pledges are due May 1, i985. 



"Second, Elon's Development Office 
raises over $3 million a year, about a 
fourth of the $12 million budget at the 
college. These outside funds, from 
alumni, businesses and other groups, 
allow students to receive a college 
education for about three-fourths of 
the actual cost," Young noted. 

Contributions to the college have 
made possible several improvements in 
the beautification of the 150-acre cam- 
pus m the past few years. Most of 
these projects have been completed 
through the generosity of individuals 
in the Elon College community and 
alumni from throughout the nation. 

"We have found that an environ- 
ment conducive to learning attracts 
students and builds pride in the in- 
stitution," Young said, 

Elon's successes have not been 
without problems. With 2,800 
students, the coeducational college has 
the third largest private undergraduate 
enrollment in the state. The growth 
has created overcrowding, and six new 
residence halls have been constructed 
in the past three years, a time when 
other colleges are struggling to main- 
tain enrollments. 

Even with the new dorms, the col- 
lege began the year with doiens of 
students in a local motel, although 
most overcrowding in rooms was 
eliminated. 

As word of Elon's academic reputa- 
tion and low tuition spreads, the 
number of applications increases. In 
Virginia, for instance-, where Elon's 
academic reputation and low costs are 
well known among high school 



students, more students who left the 
state attended Elon than any other 
college in the nation. 

Earlier this year, the admission re- 
quirements were increased for the first 
time in several years, and already ap- 
plications for next year are ahead at 
the college, which has rejected more 
students for next year than it had this 
time last year. 

"We're not complaining," Young 
pointed out. "These are problems 
many schools would like to have. But 
they are not without a cost." 

A part of that cost is a faculty that 
is overburdened and some classes 
larger than school officials would like. 

"Still, we find on surveys thai 97 
percent of our graduates list a close 
mentor relationship with a faculty 
member as the thing they like best 
about Elon College. We're very proud 
of that, and we want to continue offer- 
ing personalized attention at a 
reasonable price." 



Duncans Endow 
Scholarship 

William H. and Kathryn M. Dun- 
can, of Greensboro, N.C, have 

established an endowed scholarship at 
Elon College to aid visually-impaired 
students. The Duncan Scholarship 
Fund will be restricted to deserving 
students who are legally blind or are 
low vision patients.

New Majors Added 



Elon Enters Television Age 



A new major in Mass Communica- 
tion, which will prepare students for 
careers in radio and television, has 
been added to the Elon College cur- 
riculum. The faculty approved the new 
program in February and at the same 
time approved a major in Journalism 
to replace the existing English/Jour- 
nalism major. 

The new Mass Communication ma- 
jor is made possible by the recent ad- 
dition of a television production studio 
on the first floor of Mooney Building 
and the purchase of television equip- 
ment. The college already has a cam- 
pus radio station, WSOE-FM, which 
was increased to 500 watts last year. 

According to Dr. Chris White, vice 
president for academic and student af- 
fairs, Elon first began building a televi- 
sion program in the summer of 1984 
after Cablevision of Alamance ap- 
proached the college with a proposal 
to lay cable for an internal campus 
television channel and asking the col- 
lege to provide programming for the 
local access cablevision channel. At 
that time W. Ray Johnson was hired 
as coordinator of television services 
and communication, and basic televi- 
sion equipment was acquired. 

Beginning in the fall semester 
Johnson and a group of interested 



students produced a weekly cablevison 
show entitled "Elon in Review" which 
is shown over the Alamance and 
Guilford county local access channels. 
In January, more equipment was pur- 
chased and the Mooney videotaping 
classroom was converted into a televi- 
sion production studio. Johnson and 
Gerald Gibson, assistant professor of 
communications, are currently using 
the studio to teach Elon's first produc- 
tion course. 

"Elon now has video facilities 
equivalent to that of most small televi- 
sion studios and many larger institu- 
tions," said Johnson. "And we have 
some added advantages. 

"At most larger universities the 
students never get to touch the 
sophisticated equipment. That privilege 
is reserved for graduate students and 
professors only. Our students will get 
to use everything, 

"Also, in most other schools, even m 
graduate programs, the tapes that are 
created are never seen by anyone 
other than the class and the professor. 
We will have the ability to cablecast 
live from the studio, Whitley 
Auditorium, Alumni Gymnasium and 
the new fine arts center, and our pro- 
grams will actually be seen by an au- 
dience either over the campus channel 
or the local access channel." 



Meiselman Gives 
Land To Elon 



A Charlotte businessman has con- 
tributed a gift of real estate appraised 
at 5235,000 to the Elon College PRIDE 
II campaign. The donation came as a 
result of a suggestion by an alumnus 
living in Jacksonville, Fla. 

The businessman who made the gift, 
one of the major donations to the 
Elon PRIDE II campaign, is Ira S. 
Meiselman, 42-vear-old president of 
Eastern Federal Corp. Eastern Federal 
operates approximately 100 theaters in 
the southeastern United States. 

The Elon alumnus who influenced 
Mr. Meiselman to make the gift is 
William H. Maness, class of 1938, and 
an attorney and partner in the firm of 
Maness and Kachergus of Jacksonville, 
Fla. 

"We have identified a number of 
land parcels over the last few years 
that we felt would make suitable gifts," 
Mr. Meiselman explained. "One of 
these was the site in Jacksonville. Our 
firm has been represented by Bill 
Maness over a period of years. When 
discussion arose concerning several 
parcels of land, including the one in 
Jacksonville, and possible recipients 

■re mentioned, including the City of 
Jacksonville. Bill Maness lobbied for 
Elon in a friendly but persistent man- 
ner. We are pleased to make the dona- 
tion to Elon." 



Mr. Meiselman, a native of Fayette- 
viile who has lived in Charlotte most 
of his life, is a graduate of the Whar- 
ton School ot Business of the Universi- 
ty of Pennsylvania. His wife Jenny is a 
graduate of Duke University with a 




Ira S. Meiselman 

master's degree and a doctorate from 
the University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill. She is a licensed practic- 
ing psychologist. The couple has two 
children. 

"Loyal alumni like Bill Maness and 
generous benefactors like Ira 
Meiselman are two of the chief reasons 
Elon can continually upgrade the 
quality of its program," said President 
Fred Young, "We are grateful to both 
these men for this gift," 




Three alumni for Eton: Dr. )o Waits \X/tlliams -55, vice president 
for developmeni at Elon. accepts a Northwestern Bank gift of $10,000 for the 
nciL' fine arts center from Watt Jenrteite '66, left, senior vice presideni. tntst 
division, and Bob Skinner '60, executive vice president . 



Francis Named 
To Dean's Post 

Dr. Gerald L. Francis, former pro- 
fessor of mathematics, has been named 
dean of academic affairs at Elon 
College. 

Dr. Francis has served as associate 
dean of academic affairs since June, 
1983, As dean he will be responsible 
to the vice president for academic and 
student affairs for the supervision and 
development of the academic program 
of the college. 

"Dr. Francis has done an excellent 
job as professor, department chairman, 
and associate dean," said Vice Presi- 
dent Chris White. "He has tremendous 
support from the faculty and I am con- 
vinced that this appointment will be a 
positive step for Elon College." 

Dr. Francis, a native of the 
Washington, D.C. area, graduated 
from Appalachian State University. He 
received his master's degree from ASU 
and his Ph.D. degree from Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute and State 
University. 

Before joining the Elon faculty in 
1974, Dr. Francis taught in the 
Virginia public school system and at 
ASU. From 1978-84 he served as 
chairman of the Elon Math Depart- 
ment and was instrumental in the for- 
mation of the Computer Information 
Science Program. 



BI Foundation 
Gives To PRIDE 

Burlington Industries Foundation has 
pledged $50,000 to the Elon College 
PRIDE II Campaign, college officials 
have announced. The funds will be 
used toward the construction of the 
proposed fine arts center. 

"We are cognizant of the fine work 
being done at Elon and the large 
number of employees' children who 



have benefited from the college and its 
services over recent years," said Park 
R, .Davidson, executive director of the 
foundation. 

The fine arts center will be con- 
structed on Williamson Avenue near 
the site of the present track. A new 
all-weather track and soccer field have 
been built on the northern end of the 
campus near the Koury Field House. 

"This grant from the Burlington 
Industries Foundation will go a long 
way towards helping Elon College pro- 
vide this needed addition to our fine 
arts program," Elon College President 
Fred Young said. "We are grateful for 
the sense of community needs the 
Burlington Industries Foundation has 
recognized in making this substantial 
gift." 



Cytotechnology 
Gift Received 

Hoffmann-La Roche, a major 
research-oriented health care compan' 
has given $3,500 to Elon College, 
which will go directly toward the 
Cytotechnology Program, 

The Cytotechnology Program at 
Elon offers both bachelor and associate 
degrees in cooperation with Roche 
Biomedical Laboratories. Inc. of Burl- 
ington, a subsidiary of Hoffmann-La 
Roche. The program is designed to 
meet the needs of students preparing 
for positions as cytotechnologists in 
hospitals, clinics, commercial 
laboratories, and private physicians' 
laboratories. The work of seniors in 
the program is done primarily at 
Roche Biomedical Laboratories in 
Burlington. 

"On behalf of all of us associated 
with Elon College, I would like to 
thank Hoffmann-La Roche for their 
generous gift," said Dr. Jo Watts 
Williams, vice president for develop- 
ment at Elon.

The young boy walked with his 
father through the corridors of 
the state capitol in Raleigh. If 
memory is correct, the year was about 
1913, and the pair had come by train 
from Gates County to see the sights, 
the first glimpse of the city for the 
boy. The highlight of the tour was the 
capitol, for the father admired and 
respected the elected government of- 
ficials. He was showing his eldest child 
where, these great men worked for the 
people of North Carolina. 

In those days state officials, from the 
governor down, received their consti- 
tuents, heard their problems or sugges- 
tions, and talked with them. As the 
boy and his father walked along the 
halls of the capitol, the boy saw 
"Governor" on one door, "Lt. Gover- 
nor" on the next, "Secretary of State" 
on another, but all the doors were 
closed. He longed to see inside, to see 
these respected persons, but his father 
had no reason to knock on the doors, 
and they walked on. This experience 
impressed the boy. Why were the 
doors shut? What went on behind 
them? 

At the end of the day, a foot-weary 
Taiewell Eure and his son Thad 
returned to the Gates County farm in 
eastern North Carolina, not far from 
the Virginia line, Taiewell Eure. an 
onlv child, had inherited the farm 



from his father, ownership by the fami 
ly going back to an original land 
grant. 

Thad had gone to a one-room, one- 
teacher school, trudging through all 
kinds of weather for the six-month 
school terms. He carried a tin lunch 
bucket holding a piece of side-meat, a 
sweet potato and a cold biscuit. Dur- 
ing his six month vacations, he work- 
ed on his father's farm. For high 
school, he walked three miles to and 
from Gatesville, the county seat, for 
four years, 1913-I9I7. Here he studied, 
played football and thought about 
what he was going to do. 

"I never thought of anything but 
practicing law," Thad Eure says. "So 
my father said I should go to the 
University in Chapel Hill where there 
was a law school. I'm satisfied that if 
Elon College had had one law book, 
he would have sent me there, for Elon 
College was a part of our family's life 
always. My grandfathers on both sides 
were devoted to Elon. An aunt of 
mine went there, and later my sister 
and two brothers, and four of my 
grandchildren." 

Thad Eure attended the University 
of North Carolina two years for 
general studies and pre-law and two 
years for law. He traveled back and

door closed during office hours." 

"Elon College was a part of our family's life always." 



forth from home to university bv 
train. One day as he returned to 
Chapel Hill, he met pretty Minca 
Banks, on her way back to St. Mary's 
College in Raleigh. 

"No, I didn't visit her at St. Mary's.' 
he recalls with a chuckle. "A man 
couldn't get inside the door at a girl's 
school in those days, but we did write 
letters. And I saw her in Winton, her 
home in Hertford County about nine 
miles from our farm." 

After graduation from law school, 
Eure remembers he did not wish to go 
too far from his father's garden and 
smokehouse, for these were hard times 
in the early 1920's. He happened to 
find space for a desk at a law of^'ice in 
Winton, however, and set out by mule 
cart for Winton with a desk, some 
books and clothing. When he reached 
the bank of the Chowan River, he had 
to pull the raft'tvpe ferry across the 
river. Then he made his way to the 
office. 

"For the little things I did in my 
practice that first year, I was most 
often paid in hams, meat, vegetables 
from gardens or fish from the river," 
Eure says. "You may find this hard to 
believe now, but for the first year my 
cash receipts totaled less than $100. 
But I stuck it out." 

A friendly, tall young lawyer who 
liked to talk with the residents of his 
new hometown. Eure decided to enter 
the 1923 race for mayor of Winton. 
He won. He was also chosen Hertford 
County attorney and was given an of- 
fice in the courthouse. 

Eure was seeing Mima Banks, and 
he knew that he wanted to marry her. 
But he had vowed that he would not 
marry until he was 25 years of age. 
"Minta says I am stubborn," he adds, 
but did agree to the first possible day 
November 15. 1924, his 25th birthday! 
Thev were married in Winton. 



Eure served as mayor of Win- 
ton until 1928 and county at- 
torney until 1931. In the 
meantime, in 1929 he was elected to 
the N.C. House of Representatives. He 
was named principal clerk of the house 
for sessions of 1931, 1933, 1935 and 
the extra session in 1936. Already ac- 
tive in the Democratic Party, he was 
chosen Presidential elector for the First 
District, North Carolina, in 1932, 

In 1936 Eure threw his hat into the 
ring for the office of secretary of state. 
He won and has won in every election 
since, through November 1984, for 
four-year terms. And so he is into his 
49th year as secretary of state and his 
62nd year of continuous elective office. 
According to the Council of State 
Governments, Secretary Eure's record 
tops all national records for longevity 
in elective office. 

What is this man's secret for suc- 
cessful re-election? There are no 
secrets, he says, but he adds that cer- 
tain events and persons taught him 
valuable lessons, 

"I'll remember always that first trip 
to the capitol with my father when I 
never saw an open door. It made an 
impression on me. So when I was 
elected secretary of state. 1 took the 
nameplate off my office door and at- 
tached it to the inside and left the 
door open. With the door open, a per- 
son entering can see whose office this 
IS and can see into the office. For 48 



years-now into the 49th-no person 
has seen my door closed during office 
hours. 

"1 have served with 13 consecutive 
governors of North Carolina. I recall 
one governor's visit to my office. He 
came in, walked to a chair and started 
to sit. Just before hitting the bottom of 
the chair, he stood and walked to the 
door, took the doorknob, and I said. 
'I've been here several years and that 
door has stayed open. Please, let's not 
close it now. If we must talk behind 
closed doors, could we go to your of- 
fice?' " The governor left the door 
open and came back to talk. 

"Don't think others don't know 
about that open door," Eure con- 
tinues. "This policy led to a related 
one. No secretary of mine ever asks. 
'Who's calling?' when a telephone 
caller does not identify himself or 
herself, I will not permit that. You 
know the main purpose of asking is so 
you can decide whether you'll talk or 
not. I will talk to them. And no 
secretary brings me a calling card from 
a visitor. If a person wants to see me, 
and I am in my office. I see him 
regardless of his station in life. This 
policy has stood me in good stead 
through the years. 

"A person who gave me valuable in- 
formation was Governor Clyde R. 
Hoey. He was elected governor the 
same year 1 became secretary of state. 
This man looked the part of a 
statesman; he dressed the patt. and he 
knew how to handle people and ad- 
dress the issues. In those days people 
came to see the governor and they saw 
him." 

Eure recalls a revealing incident 
when a group of Gates County citizens 
thought they had an answer to a pro- 
blem. They made appointment to see 
Governor Hoey. Before they visited 
the governor that day, they came by 
to see Eure and tell him why they had 
come to Raleigh. As they left for their 
appointment, Eure suggested they drop 
in before they left for home to let him 
know how the governor had taken 
theif ideas. 

"They did come by and all sat 
down," Eure says. "1 asked them how 
things went. One person looked 
around at the rest, and then he said, 
'Governor Hoey is one of the finest 
men we ever saw. He's a good man, 
too. You know, he has a lot of prob- 
lems, and he's doing the best he can.' 
So they had not even mentioned why 
they had come. They all looked 
satisfied. They smiled, and they left. 
"Now Governor Hoey knew what 
they were coming to see him about. 
He also knew he couldn't do anything. 
But he was a man who could play 
quarterback, call the plays, and run 
the ball. He understood people," Eure 
concluded. 

Another policy that has helped 
maintain Eure's popular support, he 
believes, has been his attitude toward 
school children. When so many public 
officials do not want to be bothered 
with noisy, questioning, nosey 
children, Eure has always welcomed 
them. He invites them into his office 
shakes their hands, asks about their 
visit to Raleigh and their hometowns 
Then the last thing he says to them i 
"Remember me to your papas and 



mamas," and he says, "They've been 
doing that through the years." 

Does the secretary spend much time 
campaigning for re-election? "Oh, yes," 
he says. "One friend said I start before 
sunrise the morning after election and 
never stop! I've never spent much 
money on getting elected though." 



Today Eure presides over the 
Department of the Secretary 
of State with five divisions 
for its multitude of responsibilities. 
When he was elected in 1936. he head 
ed a Department of State with seven 
members. In the first full year, 1937, 
for example, they issued charters to ' 
about 700 business corporations. In 
1984, with 53 employees, the depart- 
ment issued more than 12.000 charters. 

When he began as secretary, the 
department served as custodian of the 
state constitution and all the laws 
enacted. He was a member of the 
Council of State, he attested 
documents signed by the governor and 
the use of the great seal of the state, as 
well as issuing charters to businesses. 
The divisions of the department today 
are Publications, Corporations, 
Securities, Uniform Commercial Code 
and General Administration, 

"it is interesting the way I found my 
deputy in the Uniform Commercial 
Code Division," says Eure. "I was at 
the Elon College graduation in 1970, 
sitting on the platform when a young 
man graduate attracted my attention. 
His name was Charles Moore. After 
the ceremony 1 tried to find him in 
the crowd but couldn't, and so I 
telephoned him and offered him a job, 
He accepted. That young man had no 
vacation after graduation. Today he is 
in charge of the UCC Division." 

Eure likes best those parts of his 
work that bring him into contact with 
people. Administering the oath of of- 
fice, as for highway patrolmen and 
members of the general assembly, give 
him opportunities to meet a wide 
range of North Carolina people. 
Recently, he swore in the new com- 
mander of the highway patrol, and at 
the ceremony he noted that he had 
administered the oath of office to this 
officer at every promotion in his 
career. The same was true of the se- 
cond officer in command. 

Added to Thad Eure's numerous ac- 
tivities has been his service as a 
member of the Elon College Board of 
Trustees for 43 years and its chairman 
for 30. He has served during the 
presidencies of L.E.Smith, Earl 
Danieiey, and Fred Young. With ex- 
tensive family ties to the college and 
his own long and devoted service, he 
thinks now of its future. 

"One thing worrying to all indepen- 
dent college or university administra- 
tions is financing. The cuts in federal 
funds to students and institutions as 
well as the coming strain on state 
budgets makes financing more difficult. 
States are receiving added respon- 
sibilities under the Reagan administra- 
tion and less funding to help carry out 
these responsibilities." 

Eure thinks that Elon College is for- 
tunate to have Fred Young as presi- 
dent of the North Carolina Associa- 
tion of Independent Colleges and 
Universities. "He enjoys a fine position 
among the state's institutions of higher 



learning, and he has given a lot to the 
association. North Carolina owes 

much to its independent colleges, and 
the state couldn't make it without 
them, couldn't pay for all the 
buildings, equipment, services and 
faculties they represent in order to 
educate qualified people. That's what 
the state would be required by law to 
do if we didn't have these independent 
schools." 



As an active Democrat. Thad 
Eure was keynote speaker at 
the 1950 Democratic state 
convention. He served as its perma- 
nent chairman for the 1962, 1978 and 
1982 state conventions. He still votes 
m Winton whose district named him 
Presidential elector in 1932. 

Is the Democratic Party in North 
Carolina in disarray? No, he says 
although it did suffer the biggest blow 
in his lifetime last fall, losing races for 
the U.S. Senate, governor, and two 
Congressmen. "The Democratic P/rty 
has always bounced back, and it will 
again. The party will be renewed 
rapidly, and the results will be seen in 
the next election." Eure says with the 
assurance of an elder statesman, 

Thad Eure has come to be known 
by two personal trademarks-his red 
bow tie and his green ink pen. "I can't 
remember ever wearing a four-in-one 
tie," he says. "Weil, maybe once 
When I was at the Sir Walter Raleigh 
Hotel one day before the election, a 
man from^Scotland County came'up 
and said, 'Eure. my constituents won't 
vote for you if you wear that fool tie 
Here, put this one on!' And he held a 
four-in-one tie around my neck while 
his friend took a picture of me. 

"The trouble is that I can't find 
these bow ties in shops. My daughter 
Armecia (Mrs. Norman Black) has a 
friend who makes them and Armecia 
gives me a supply at Christmas." 

Using green ink to sign his name on 
documents also began back when 
everyone used a fountain pen filled I 
from a bottle of ink. One governor's 
secretary estimated then that, given a 
governor in four years executes about 
50,000 official documents and all are 
attested by the secretary of state. Eure 
would have used more than five 
gallons of the green liquid just in sign- 
ing his name! 

Secretary Eure wears a hat white 
most of America goes hatless. He tops 
off his attire in the cold months with a| 
felt hat. In the spring he dons a straw 
hat, "My father always started wearing 
his hard-straw sailor on April 5th, 
his birthday, as he went into the 
village of Eure or Eure's Station where 
my father's uncle had a store and the 
Atlantic Coast freight trains wen 
through." 

Last summer Thad and Minca Eure 
moved from their Raleigh home of 39 
years to a pleasant one-story house 
with solarium and deck facing the 
woods. "We hated to give up our 
home, but Mrs. Eure has arthritis, 
Eure says, "and we needed to have 
one-story house. Here on this quiet 
road we are close to Thad Jr.'s home, 

Thad Eure has been given numerous 
awards, citations, and accolades for his 
distinguished public service, but he 
takes greatest pride in the confidence 
people have shown him through re- 
elections for 62 years. This is the jewel 
in his crown.

BOUND TO BE THE BEST 



Everybody's talking about educational excellence, but principal 
Wilma Parrish, Elon '57, is doing something about it. In 
a recent study, her middle school was named one of the top 
four in the nation. 



By Mary Owens Fitzgerald 



Amid squeals of delight rhe 
master of ceremonies ar 
Western Middle School 
fervently announces, "Our next contes- 
tant is that lovely songbird, our very 
own principal, Mrs. Wilma Brown Par- 
rish, bringing you'The Flivver Song." 

Will you love me when my spark 

plugs they have nated 

And my inner tubes have lost their 

self -respect 

When my radiator is leaking and 

my fenders are squeaking 

Will you love me when my fliwer 

IS a wreck?" 

intones Wilma Parrish to the au- 
dience's delight. 

Bedecked in her bright flapper 
costume, comfortable and at ease as a 
leading contestant on the Faculty 
Gong Show, Mrs. Parrish is an en- 
thusiastic educator who knows that 
learning can and should be fun. 
Laughter, rewards, individual attention 
and mutual respect are a few of the 
components that make learning at 
Western Middle School in Alamance 
County, North Carolina, vital and na- 
tionally recognized. The creative force 
shaping this school into an extraor- 
dinary environment for learning is 
Wilma Brown Parrish. Elon '57. 

The selection of Western Middle 
School in 1980 as one of the four 
outstanding schools in the nation for 
Joan Lipsiti's study. Succt*ss/ui Schools 
(or Young Adolescents, is perhaps the 
most significantrecognitio'n of Mrs. 
Parrish's achievements. Mrs. Lipsitz, 
director of the Center for Early 
Adolescence at the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill ex- 
amines four effective and successful 
middle schools that foster healthy 
social development and academic 
achievement. Western Middle appears 
in Lipsitz's study as "Proud Country." 

Born in 1922 to Olivia and Billy 
Brown, Wilma Brown finished Burl- 
ington High School in 1941 and mar- 
ried William E. Parrish in 1942. Short- 
ly thereafter, the young couple bought 
a small home and invited her mother 
ro live with them. A son. Lewis, and a 
daughter, Betty, were born and the 
years passed for Mrs. Parrish in the 
role of the traditional homemaker. 

Fourteen years after finishing high 
school, Mrs. Parrish was asked to 
substitute for Betty's first grade teacher 
at Elon Elementary School. She 
delighted the children with a 
Christmas tea. stories and songs woven 
into their academic work. The prin- 
cipal, Dr. Hill, was so impressed with 
this natural born teacher he offered a 
job without hesitation, only to 



discover that her formal education 
ended with high school. 

Determined to see her in the 
classroom. Dr. Hill pressured Mrs. Par- 
rish to keep an appointment with the 
registrar at Elon College. She left the 
office slightly dazed, for she found 
herself enrolled to begin classes im- 
mediately. 



Mrs. Parrish's determination 
took her soaring through 
classes at Elon, and she 
completed the course work in three 
years. "Elon was good to me," she 
reminisces. She played the piano and 
worked in the student store to help 
with expenses. Her husband worked a 
second job. She majored in English 
and gravitated toward drama, art and 
music courses that complemented her 
natural talents and interests. Though a 
wife and mother, she was active on 
campus as a day student, served her 
sorority as president (wears her sorori- 
ty pen in her lapel to this day) and 
participated in Drama Club activities. 

At graduation, Mrs. Parrish lacked 
only two drama courses for a double 
major. She plays the piano for pleasure 
and entertainment and readily admits, 
"I'm a ham." Coupled with her gift to 
make each student realize how special 
he is, the talents inherited from her 
mother provided the raw materials 
necessary for a superb teacher. 

After eleven years as a teacher at 
Elon Elementary School, Mrs. Parrish 
was offered principalship at South 
Mebane Elementary School. Two and 
a half years later, she became principal 
at Altamahaw-Ossipee Elementary 
School. One of the most remarkable 
incidents in the Parrish's life occurred 
during this period. Grandparents 
themselves, they "adopted" a son. 

Jimmy first appeared in Mrs. Par- 
rish's life at Altamahaw-Ossipee the 
day Social Services enrolled a curly- 
headed little fellow shrinking down in- 
to the scruffy fur collar on his worn 
grey coat. Fear and anxiety filled his 
clear blue eyes. Mrs. Parrish's gentle 
but firm hug dispelled his fears. Warm- 
ed and relaxed, Jimmy eased into her 
heart and life. The bond between 
them grew. 

However, in November 1972, Social 
Services planned to place Jimmy in a 
home out-of-state. Aware that he had 
been in eight foster homes in his brief 
nine years, Mrs. Parrish and her hus- 
band went to court, challenged Social 
Services and on April 27, 1973, 
won the custody battle for Jimmy. 



In 1978 Elon Elementary and 
Altamahaw-Ossipee merged 
into Western Middle School 
and Mrs. Parrish was appointed prin-

one of the most successful principals in the nation. 



cipal. She participated in the original 
planning, worked with architects, the 
School Board and educational commit- 
tees to achieve a setting that would 
stimulate and invite learning. Today. 
six years later, the building is spotless, 
with only gentle signs of wear. 

Nestled among the landscaped beds 
of azaleas and hollies is the plaque 
denoting Western Middle as the reci- 
pient of the Alamance Beautification 
Special Schools Pride Award. How are 
such extras funded? "Money is not a 
problem," comments Mrs. Parrish. Her 
willingness to solve a problem with her 
own energy and elbow grease as well 
as personal funds is inspirational to 
those around her. The entire com- 
munity has been infused with a spirit 
o( pride for Western Middle School. 
As one colleague noted, "Mrs. Parrish 
takes her resources and makes gold 
when others only make tin." 

Though Mrs. Parrish is completely in 
charge of her school, each of her 
teachers knowS she is approachable, 
that they have freedom to function in 
the style best suited to them. 

The curriculum is interdisciplinary 
arfd built around varied themes. Staff 
development is a priority. Developmen- 
tal activities are a priority. Field trips 
include fascinating workbooks that in- 
corporate fun into the academic re- 
quirements. Above all, basics are a 
priority: "Don't interrupt the basics!" 
Two block periods provide uninter- 
rupted time for academic basics daily. 

Undergirding all Mrs. Parrish's 
natural talent is a sound philosophy of 
education developed during her years 
ai Elon and the University of North 
Carolina at Greensboro where she 
earned her Master's Degree in educa- 
tion in 1963. Deeply etched into her 
philosophy are these key words:Goa/i, 
organization and flexibility. 



How does one account for 
Western Middle's success? 
Lipsitz quotes Mrs. Parrish as 
saying, "Anyone can do what we did 
with a united faculty, complete 
readiness on day one, and constant 
questioning: "How can we be the best? 
How can we make it inviting?" 

Since the publication of Siiccejs/ul 
ScfiooLs for Young Adolescents, requests 
to speak have come steadily into Mrs. 
Parrish's office. Though she en- 
thusiastically shares her concepts about 
adolescent education, she misses the 
time with her students and faculty. 
That is where her heart is, and that is 
what she loves; the interaction with 
her students. She knows them all by 
name. She loves them each for who 
they are. She taught James Turner at 
Elon Elementary. His son Rick is now 
at Western Middle. James says Mrs. 
Parrish is the "finest woman I've ever 
known. She likes her kids and takes 
time with them." Rick echoes his dad's 
remarks with "she's always your 
friend." 

The greatest reward for Mrs. Parrish 
is the confidence and trust of her 
students. "Seeing the children build a 
good self-image and succeed" is her 
way of knowing that she has done her 
job, and done it well. 

Mrs. Parrish cites lack of time as the 
most serious problem. "There just 
isn't time to do everything," she mus- 
ed. "Maybe in retirement there will be 
time. ..time to do some writing, to edit 
my late mother's poetry." 

For someone as vital and vigorous as 
Wilma Brown Parrish, retirement 
seems remote. It is inconceivable that 
her sparks plugs would ever rust if her 
windshield wipers shed bitter tears. But 
from those whose lives she has touch- 
ed, there is a resounding "YES" when 
she asks, "Will you still love me when 
my fli\vpr is a wreck?" 



6 The Magazine of Elon March, 1985 



tnise en scene 



Bv Jim Schlosser 

If you like movies, you'll love 
John Sparks. 
His name doesn't appear on a 
movie marquee, only on a small direc- 
tory in the lobby of the Green Valley 
Office Building. 

He's a certified public accountant, 
age 60, a grandfather. In one corner of 
his ofice is a bookcase filled with such 
tomes as "Federal Taxes Affecting Real 
Estate," "Federal Income Gift and 
Estate Taxation" and "Tax Planning 
for Executive Compensation." 

Sparks walks over to the bookcase, 
fishes around and pulls out "Dic- 
tionary of Film." 

He was having trouble remembering 
1969's movie of the year. He thought it 
was "The Graduate," but, no, the 
Dustin Hoffman classic was released in 
1967 and was passed over for the top 
award that year by Rod Steiger's "In 
the Heat of the Night." 



Ah, "Midnight Cowboy" - that's 
what won in 1969. 

Such slipups are rare for Sparks. 
Name any movie and he ticks off the 
year it was made, who starred, how 
many, if any, Academy Awards it 
won. and lots of other facts, figures 
and fascinating details. 

Who is the only actor to win two 
Academy Awards back-to-back? 
Stumped? Stumped? Sparks isn't. 

Not only does Sparks know his 
movies, but he can even tell the 
theaters he munched popcorn in while 
watching them. 

Some examples: 
"Mutiny on the Bounty" — "1 caught 
that one at the Paramount in Burl- 
ington in 1935. It was voted the best 
movie in 1935. Three actors - Clark 
Gable, Charles Laughton and Fran- 
chot Tone - all were nominated for the 
Academy Award. Victor McLaglen got 
it instead for "The Informer." 
"Gone With The Wind" — "It open- 
ed in Greensboro on Feb. 12, 1940, at

the National Theatre. 1 remember that 
because my brother and I gor confused 
and came over from Burlington a week 
early to see the movie. So we went 
back to Burlington and saw a film 
there." 

Which one? 

"It was 'Arizona' with William 
Holden and Jean Arthur. We saw it at 
the State Theatre. 1 liked it, my 
brother didn't. 1 finally saw 'Gone 
With The Wind' later, at the State." 
"Manhattan Melodrama" — "I saw 
that in 1935 at the National in 
Greensboro. That was the movie John 
Dillinger had just left in Chicago when 
he was shot by the FBI. The movie 
starred Clark Gable. Myrna Loy and 
William Powell." 

Sparks' favorite year for movies was 
1939. 

"I can sit right here and name 10 
classics made that year," he says. 

He winds up naming 12: "Destry 
Rides Again," "Gone With The 
Wind." "Gunga Din," "Stanley &. Liv- 
ingstone," "Jesse James," "Goodbye. 
Mr. Chips," "Union Pacific." "The 
Hound of the Baskervilles," "The 
Oklahoma Kid," ("one of the few 
westerris that James Cagney ever 
made"), "Dodge City," "The Wizard of 
Oz" and "Wuthering Heights." 

By 1939, the talkies had been 
perfected. The big movie studios were 
in keen competition to make 
blockbusters. "And it's possible that 
1939 was the last year that didn't feel 
the influence of World War II," Sparks 
says. 

"World War II changed everything. 
That's why I think 'Gone With The 
Wind' was so popular. It depicted an 
era that was gone forever. And its ap- 
pearance coincided with an era that 
was gone forever." 



Before World War II. Sparks 
lived an idyllic life in Burl- 
ington, watching every shoot- 
'em-up western chat played at the city's 
four movie houses; the Paramount, 
Alamance, State and Carolina, plus 
the Graham, where he remembers see- 
ing "Trail of the Lonesome Pine" in 
1936. 

"I would get the dime from 
somewhere," he says of the admission 
price, "When the newspaper came I 
remember I always turned to the 
movie section first." 

Psychologists surely would diagnose 
Sparks as having a deep-seated desire 
CO be a glamorous movie star. Not so. 
He says he just loves the movies. He 
doesn't think he's really any different 
from most Americans. 

"This country is very movie- 
minded," he says. "What we wear is 
influenced by the movies. Our presi- 
dent is a former movie scar. For a long 
time, actors have been in politics: Jane 
Foncia and Paul Newman. A long time 
ago, an actor named Edward Arnold 
was close to Eleanor Roosevelt." 
Sparks has deep affection for old 



movies, but he doesn't turn his nose 
up ac what's on the screen today. 

"I think the movies now are just as 
good as any ever made," he says. He 
was enchanted with Barbra Streisand 
in "The Way We Were." He thinks 
"Ghandi" will become a classic. He 
thought Robert Redford's "The 
Natural" was outstanding. He loved 
"The World According to Garp," He 
liked the fast pace of "Raiders of the 
Lost Ark." 

While he thinks older movies are 
charming because they leave something 
to the imagination regarding sex, he's 
not always offended by today's nudity 
or graphic language. "If it's handled 
right, it doesn't detract from the 
movie," he says. 

He was, however, startled by the 
profanity in "On Golden Pond," 
alchough he liked the film. "I just 
wasn't used to Henry Fonda using that 
kind of language." 

He prefers to remember Fonda in 
"My Darling Clementine," which 
Sparks rates as the top western ever. 
He says the best dececcive movie ever 
made was "The Maltese Falcon"; che 
best musicals, "My Fair Lady" and 
"Cabaret"; the best movies with social 
impact, "The Grapes of Wrath" and 
"From Here to Eternity"; and the best 
adventure movie, "Tlie Bridge on the 
River Kwai." 

"Gone With the Wind" is the best 
overall film, he says. 

At his home Sparks has a 
library containing 80 moVie 
books. He has 50 films on cassette. He 
does most of che movie watching these 
days in front of the television. "1 really 
don't go to the movies much anymore, 
maybe twice a year," he says. 

He doesn't play "Trivial Pursuit," 
but he'd he unbeatable if he did. 

Incidentally, the only actor to win 
back-to-back Academy Awards was 
Spencer Tracy for "Captains 
Courageous" in 193? and "Boys 
Town" in 1938. 

"1 didn't see 'Courageous' until years 
later — on television," he says. "I saw 
'Boys Town' the year it came out - in 
Mehane at "The Mebane."

Morrison to 
Leave Elon 



Danny Morrison, assistant basketball 
coach, tennis coach and assistant 
athletic director at Eion, will become 
athletic director at Wofford College, 
Spartanburg, S.C., at the end of the 
1985 basketball season. 

Morrison, 31, is a 1975 honors 
graduate of Wofford and was a star 
guard on the Terriers' basketball team. 
He will take over the athletic director's 
duties from Billy Parker, who resigned 
last Dec. 20 as AD and head football 
coach. 

Morrison, who attended Walter 
Williams High School in Burlington, 
began his coaching career at Williams 
after graduating from Wofford. He 
joined the Elon staff in 197*^ as tennis 
coach and assistant to head basketball 
coach Bill Morningstar. Three years 
ago Morrison began working as an 
assistant to athletic director Alan 
White. 

Saying that he regretted leaving 
Elon, Morrison stated, "I look at my 
new job at Wofford as a challenge and 
an opportunity. As athletic director at 
Wofford, 1 look forward to a conti- 
nuance of good relations with Elon 
College." 

"I think Wofford made an excellent 
choice m picking Danny to help 
restructure their athletic program," 
said Elon AD White. 

"Danny has done an outstanding job 
for us as an assistant basketball coach 
and recruiter. He was just as efficient 
with the tennis team, which he has 
turned into a winner. We hate to lose 
a man of his caliber, but we wish him 
well." 

"Danny is one of the finest people 
I've been associated with, not only as a 
co-worker but as a friend," Morn- 
ingstar said. "He's been very loyal to 
our basketball program at Elon, very 
dedicated in every respect. He's not a 
person you can really replace because 
of his many fine qualities." 



Kelly Retires 
After 17 Years 



An era in Elon College athletics 
ended on December 31. 1984 when 
Coach Don Kelly retired after 17 
years. 

Kelly was the last of former Coach 
"Red" Wilson's assistants to leave the 
college. Wilson and his staff arc 
credited with first bringing national 
recognition to the Elon football 
program. 

Kelly came to Elon in 196? from 
Fayetteville (N.C.) High School as 
chairman of the physical education 
department and assistant football 
coach. He had previously coached at 
Winston-Salem Reynolds High School 
where his team earned two state titles. 

Kelly began his Elon coaching career 
tutoring defensive and offensive end 



linebackers. As the coaching staff grew 
he became more specialized and drop- 
ped offensive ends. Since Wright 
Anderson's tenure he has coached in- 
side linebackers only. 

Kelly always maintained a heavy 
teaching load. One of his proudest 
acomplishmencs is the establishment of 
the aquatics program. 

Under Kelly's guidance the program 
expanded greatly and now includes, 
among other courses, Water Safety In- 
struction and Scuba. Kelly has logged 
more than 2000 hours teaching these 
Red Cross programs. He has also been 
the coordinator of the skiing program. 




Coach Don Kelly 

Kelly will carry some great memories 
with him. "There have been so many," 
he says. "The playoff game with 
Hillsdale, Michigan at the stadium 
here was something. We won easily, 
the game was played in a cold 
downpour. I remember we spent lots of 
time on the sidelines cleaning mud cur 
of the players' noses and ears." 

Elon faculty and students will have 
their share of Kelly memories too. 
Seniors from the football team will 
recall hot days during summer ball 
when Kelly would appear with a swim 
cap full of ice on his head, socks rolled 
down and shirt sleeves and shorts roll- 
ed up! 

"Next to the word individual in the 
dictionary it says Don Kelly," athletic 
trainer Marty Baker often jokes. 

After his retirement. Kelly plans to 
continue teaching part-time in 
Winston-Salem where his home is. He 
is also interested in developing his skill 
playing the organ and in travel. 

"Lots of fwople will never know how 
much Don Kelly has meant to the 
Elon football program." said head 
coach Macky Carden. "And more 
than that he is one of the nicest per- 
sons you'll find anywhere." 

"It will be difficult to find a person 
with the variety of abilities and the 
dedication of Coach Kelly." added Dr 
Janie Brown, head of the Department 
of Physical Education.

Men's Basketball 

As of this writing the Elon men's 
basketball team stood at 17-6 overall 
and was leading the NAIA District 26 
competition with four games remain- 
ing. Pembroke State University was a 
close second in the district competi- 
tion, however, and the finish promised 
to be exciting. 

The front line of Robert Leak, Eric 
Hairston, and Rafael Hernande: and 
the backcourt of Vince Richardson 
and Ricky Larry have led the way for 
the Christians this season. 

Women's Basketball 

The Elon Golden Girls have con- 
tinued to have a few problems this 
vear. Through Feb. II, the team stood 
5-15 overall and 3-12 in the district. 
They last won on January 21 when 
they defeated High Point in Alumni 
Gym by a 66-61 count. 

Jamie McNeely leads the Elon scor- 
ing. The 5-11 junior forward from 
Icard, N.C, has blazed the nets for an 
18.7 scoring average. 



Wrestling 

Elon College recently finished in se- 
cond place in the Washington &. Lee 
Wrestling Invitational in Lexington, 
Va. The Christians w^e spearheaded 
by the top performance of Bobby 
Brown in the 150 weight class. 

Elon finished with 78 points, second 
to the host Generals l09'/2. In third 
was Hampden-Sydney with 48'/2, 
followed by Davidson 35. Pfeiffer 30, 
Washington &l Lee "B" team 23'/^, and 
Lynchburg 4'/4. 

Other top performances were turned 
in by Mike Fitzgerald at 118 where he 
took second place. Also taking second 
place was Scott Crater at 142, and 
Fred McMannus in the heavyweight 
division. 

A week earlier, Elon hosted its own 
Southern Invitational in East Gym. 
The Christians finished third behind 
Pembroke State and Livingstone. PSU 
and Livingstone are ranked in the na- 
tion's top 20 for NCAA Division II. 
Top performances were turned in by 
Brown in the 142 class where he took 
first place. McMannus took second in 
the heavyweight division. 

To start the year, Elon visited the 
prestigious Clemson Tiger 8 Invita- 
tional at Clem'son, S.C. Elon finished 
in sixth place of the six teams but 
gained valuable knowledge because of 
the stiff competition.

A Great 
Comeback 



in I''Jo7, during his senior year 
at Elon, Randy Warren and 
several friends attended what 
began as a normal college party. 
As they were "pranking around" 
on the host's porch, Warren mis- 
judged the depth of an eight-inch 
step to the ground, lost his 
balance and went sprawling. 

He knew immediarelv 
something was wrong, but it was 
24 hours later before he 
discovered the worst; his neck 
was broken and he was paralyzed 
from the neck down. 

A star athlete tn high school 
and at Elon, Watren had dream- 
ed of playing professionally in 
the Canadian Football League 
after firaduation. The accident 
put an end to those dreams. But 
since that time he has worked 
toward other goals with the same 
detetmination that made him a 
success on the playing fields. 

Warren spent two years in 
hospitals following his injury. 
During that time he surprised his 
Elon coach, George Tucker, with 
ti portrait of Tuckcr-an amazing 
iikeness-that he had drawn by 
holding a paint brush m his 
teeth. 

Within IS months, Warren had 
regained some use of his arms 
and hands. He returned to col- 
lege and completed his degree in 
1968. Today he says, "1 can do 
just about anything except walk 
and climb a trce--and I could 
probably climb a tree if a hear 
S^ot after me."

The Zoo Crew 

By Johnnie Allen Renick '78 

One of the most precious memories 
of Elon for me is a group of girls on 
second floor of Scalcy Dorm, \Vc called 
ourselves the "ZoD Cre\v" which was a 
name well chosen. We were devoted to 
each other and enjoyed ourselves totai- 
ly. We did wild things like organizing 
"jpck raids," touring the campus par- 
ties, and creating a slogan for 
telephone use (not printable). 

Once in the middle of December, 
before our Christmas break, we dress- 
ed up (or Halloween and ran frantical- 
ly through the boys' dorms. I'll never 
forger the Halloween wc charged 
freshmen 10c to view our eternaliv 
dead sleeper. Beth. Dunng the night 
she slept wich her eyes opened on her 
back with her hands clasped on" her 
chest. We helped the effect wich 
flowers scuffed in her hands. 

Our group had cee-shircs made wich 
our nick-names on the back. We even 
had our picture taken for the year 
book. This July we have planned for 
our ten year reunion. We met 10 years 
ago this fall. The love and friendship 
we had may never come again. With 
each year, we remember our times 
together.

Burlington, will be remember^ by Elon 
grads of the early i940s as the first 
superintendent of an experiment in college 
farming instituted by then president Dr. 
L.E, Smith. Mr, Lynch oversaw the opera- 
tions on three tracts of land totaling 290.1 1 
acres. He cleared a profit on the project 
which was established in 1941 to furnish

However, because of the scarcity of help 
during the war years, he left the project in 
1943 to become a rural mail carrier. Faced 
with mounting costs, the farm was aban- 
doned in 1954 but much of the land has 
been used to advantage by the college since 
that time.

A placement office 
that works 

Elon*s Career Planning and Placement 
offices prepare undergrads for 
life after college 

by Carol Nix 



Elon College now has a Placement 
Office — and a new sec of goals for 
helping students and alumni finds jobs. 
Whereas before, the Elon career plan- 
ing and placement services were com- 
bined, they are now separate offices. 
This will allow each office to concen- 
trate on specific goals and plans in 
preparing Elon students for seeking 
employment. The Career Planning Of- 
fice works with students early in their 
academic lives at Elon by helping them 
decide on a major and on general 
career plans. As they become more 
specific about educational and career 
goals, they can begin to take advan- 
tage of placement services. 

Karen Thompson, Director of Place- 
ment, is planning to extend these ser- 
vices by expanding on-campus inter- 
viewing and by teaching students inter- 
viewing skills. "By the time a student 
comes to me, he should have a good 
idea of what he wants to do," she said. 
"I can give them the tools, but unless 
they sell themselves in an interview, 
they won't get the job." 



Thompson stresses the importance 
of being prepared for an interview. 
"Employers have different techni- 
ques. Tliey want to see how you 
react in different situations." She 
suggests that students schedule a 
meeting with her before making con- 
tacts with employers through the 
Placement Office so that she can get 
to know them and know their per- 
sonal needs as well as the company's 
specifications for the job. "I want a 
company to look at me as if I were 
their personal recruiter," Thompson 
said. "I want their respect as well as 
Elon College's having their respect." 

Thompson seeks to instill profes- 
sionalism in every student she sends 
to an interview. "I mean business, 
and I don't let our students inter- 
view unless they mean business." On- 
campus interviews are a reflection of 
Elon College, and Thompson sees 
that each student is well-dressed and 
well -prepared. The Placement Office 
holds workshops to improve students' 
skills in interviewing and to make 
them aware of the importance of the 
impressions they make on employers.

Karen Thompson. EJon's new director of placement, is charged with helping 
Elon graduates find good jobs in their fields. She has a variety of plans 
underway. 



Nor only is it imperative that 
students look professional, but the 
Placement Office must also reflect an 
air of corporate style. Renovations 
such as the addition of an interview 
room are planned. This will make it 
possible for more than one student to 
interview at a time. Computer hard- 
ware will be added so that Eton 
students and alumni records can be 
kept on file. This will also make it 
possible for students to find job listings 
in their field and current job openings. 

The Placement Office plans to make 
"constant contact" with employers as 
well as alumni who may be able to 
hire Elon students."Because Elon is 
small, we have to go to greater lengths 
to create an air of professionalism and 
offer things that other major univer- 
sities do not," Thompson said, "We 
have to look like we mean business." 
Thompson added that they intend to 
have the Placement Office "look as 
professional as it would be at any com- 
pany." 

Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. 
Gerald Francis, also explained the 
changes being made in the Placement 
Office. "We want to take the concept 
of a standard placement office at a 
university and the concept of a profes- 
sional placement office in a business 
community and come up with an 
aggressive, professional placement office 
at Elon." Francis said that Elon does 
not want to forget about its students 
after they graduate. "We aggressively 
recruit students and we want to ag- 
gressively help students find positions," 

The Placement Office also plans to 
utilize the efforts of parents, friends, 
and alumni who may own their own 
company or are affiliated with a com- 
pany to help a student get a position. 
This may also give the office some 



contacts with these companies as well 
as with the people "who have a special 
place in their heart for Elon." Further- 
more, these contacts hopefully will 
advertise the intentions and capabil- 
ities of Elon's Placement Office to 
those who share an interest in the 
future of Elon and the continued im- 
provements in its programs in all 
areas. By exercising all possible entries 
into the professional community, Elon 
sets itself apart from other college 
placement programs. Thompson feels 
that these contacts, as well as those 
on-campus interviews, make the dif- 
ference by preparing students for inter- 
view situations. "I think you not only 
have to be concerned with how many 
get jobs, but how to go about getting a 
job." she said. "It's very competitive." 
Elon is a small college, but its new 
placement program is a unique one. 
Many schools still have combined ca- 
reer planning and placement services. 
Elon's concentration in the direction 
of job preparation and placement for 
students is part of its continued efforts 
to have a good percentage of its 
graduates employed. This primary goal 
has launched a quest for the combina- 
tion of education and professionalism. 
"Employers will see that our students 
arc well prepared, that they want the 
jobs, that they have a focus on what 
they want to do — and they are 
serious," Thompson said. "If we stay 
along those lines, we should be suc- 
cessful." Elon is prepared to "give 
students the tools" as they seek the 
trade.

Robb Speaks 
at 1985 Elon 
Commencement 



Governor Charles S. Robb of 
Virginia delivered the commence- 
ment address at Elon College on May 
19 when approximately 427 seniors 
received their diplomas. 

Commencement exercises began 
at I0i30 a.m. in Alumni Memorial 
Gymnasium and were open to the 1 
public. 

Governor Robb also received the 
honorary doctor of laws degree. 

Robb. a lawyer, was elected lieute- 
nant governor in 1977 and in 19S1 
was chosen governor, receiving more 
votes than any candidate for state of- 
fice in Virginia's history. 

Robb was born in Phoenix, Ariz. He 
was graduated from Mount Vernon 
High School in Fairfax, Va., in 1957. 
He attended Cornell University on a 
regional scholarship and the University 
of Wisconsin on an NROTC scholar- 
ship. He received his bachelor of 
business administration degree at 
Wisconsin in 1961 and his law degree 
from the University of Virginia in 
1973. He holds honorary degrees from 
a number of colleges. 

Governor Robb has been affliated 
with the military since 1957. He was 
student commander of all ROTC units 
on campus as an undergraduate and 
began active duty with the U.S 
Marine Corps in 1961. He served as 
commander of an infantry company in 
combat in Vietnam, where he received 
10 decorations. He remains a lieute- 
nant colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps 
Reserve. 



Thad Eure 
Recognized by 
Elon Board 



Thad Eure, North Carolina's 
longtime secretary of state who also 
has been chairman of the Board of 
Trustees of Elon College for 30 years, 
was honored during the annual spring 
meeting of the Board when a chair of 
political science at the college was 
named for him. 

Establishment of the Thad Eure 
Chair of Political Science, "to he oc- 
cupied in perpetuity by an outstanding 
member of the college faculty," was 
announced by Royall Spence, Jr. of 
Greensboro, vice chairman of the 
board, at a luncheon in Eure's honor. 

Eure was named a member of the 
Elon College Board of Trustees in 
1942. He was made chairman in 1935. 
His ancestors were among the pioneer 
members of the Christian Church 
which founded Elon, and it was 
through the church, now the United 
Church of Christ, that Eure became 
interested in the college.

Will Elon Be 
Number One? 

The 1985 Elon College Phonathon 
ended with a total of $141,258 pledged 
to the college, the largest amount in 
the six-year history of the Phonathon. 

A special challenge was issued this 
year, pitting Elon against Davidson 
College and Wake Forest University. 
Last year Elon alumni ranked third 
behind these two schools in the 
percentage of alumni who make an an- 
nual donation to their alma mater, out 
of 55 private and public colleges and 
universities in the state. 

According to Dr. Jerry Tolley, direc- 
tor of corporate and annual resources 
and Phonathon organizer, it is still too 
early to tell whether Elon has taken 
over the number one spot in alumni 
giving. "Results are not in from David- 
son and Wake Forest yet," said Tolley, 
"but 1 feel Elon has a strong chance of 
becoming first in the state in alumni 
giving. 

"This was a great year of achieve- 
ment for Elon College," he said. "In 
order for us to meet our challenge, 
however, we need to collect monies on 
all of our 5,584 pledges. 

"I am pleased with the dedication 
and support of Elon alumni," added 
Tolley. "Two years ago Elon ranked 
near the bottom in the state with only 
15% of its alumni making an annual 
gift. For 1983-84, the percentage of 
participation was 30%, and this year 
looks even better." 

The Phonathon, an annual winter 
event at Elon, raises money for the 
Annual Fund, which helps to pay for 
general operating expenses. By offset- 
ting the rising costs of day-to-day 
operations, donations to the Annual 
Fund also help to keep tuition costs 
down. 

The race in the Greek Phonathon 
alumni participation challenge is going 
to be close!! As of this writing, Kappa 
Sigma and Zeta Tau Alpha have 
marginal leads. All other Greek 
organizations are closing in on the 
front runners. 

"As of May I, 1985, the college has 
received 4,300 alumni gifts, as com- 
pared to 3,300 at the same time last 
year." said Tolley. "There is still one 
month left for us to collect outstan- 
ding gifts, as wc will close our books 
on May 31," he added. 

"I would like to thank every alum- 
nus who has made a contribution to 
this very special and important fund," 
said Tolley. "Elon has one of the 
highest percentages in the state in 
alumni giving, and we want everybody 
to know about it."

4 The Magazine of Elon May, 1985 



Parham Named 
Assistant AD 



Tom Parham has been named assistant 
athletic director and tennis coach at 
Elon College, athletic director Dr. 
Alan White recently announced. 

Parham will succeed Danny Mor- 
rison, who accepted a position with 
Wofford College as fulltime athletic 
director. 

Besides his coaching and admin- 
istrative work, Parham will also be a 
member of the Physical Education 
Department staff as a teacher. Parham, 
44, comes from Atlantic Christian Col- 
lege, where he has been involved with 
athletic administration, teaching and 
coaching. 




Tom Parham 

Parham has been chosen the 
Carolines Conference or NAIA 
District 26 Coach of the Year a record 
19 times and was the first coach ever 
selected National Coach of the year 
twice, those honors coming in 1977 
and 1979. 

Parham's tennis teams at Atlantic 
Christian won two national champion- 
ships in 1979 and again last year. 
Through the years, his teams have 
compiled 16 straight winning seasons 
as well, 

Parham graduated from Atlantic 
Christian in 1963 with a B.S. in 
English and physical education and a 
minor in history. He received his 
M.Ed, from the University of North 
Carolina in 1964. 



Hassard Named 

Academic 

All-American 

Clay Hassard of Charlotte, N.C., a 
senior offensive tackle for the Fightin' 
Christian football team, was named to 
the NAIA Academic All-America team 
for 1984. Hassard has a cumulative 
3.24 grade point average in business 
administration. He had previously 
been named to the All-South Atlantic 
Conference team for Elon. 

Hassard is one of only four players 



chosen for the Academic All-America 
team. Twenty-five Elon athletes were 
named to the Dean's List for the fall 
semester at Elon College. 

"We are very proud of Clay," said 
head coach Macky Carden. "It is just 
great when a player achieves excellence 
on the field and in the classroom. This 
is the kind of thing that makes you 
appreciate the student-athlete." 



Fall Recruits 
Bolster Elon 



Even head coach Macky Carden, a 
decidedly low-key individual, seems ex- 
cited about the quality of recruits and 
transfers for Elon and Fighting Chris- 
tian football next fall. 

"We have a banner year," said 
Carden in releasing all Elon recruits 
to date, including transfers. "We've sign- 
ed 35 kids so far, 26 of them freshmen, 
and we'll probably sign four or five 
more freshmen." 

Heading the list of stellar recruits is 
transfer Perry Cuda, 6-1, 190 pound 
former Alabama quarterback. Cuda 
was recruited by the late Bear Bryant 
in his final year at Alabama, was red- 
shirted in 1982, saw some action in 
1983 when he led the Crimson Tide to 
three touchdowns in a victory over 
Vanderbilt. 

After a back injury and some per- 
sonal difficulties with the Alabama 
quarterback coach, Cuda transferred 
to South Carolina last year, but had 
academic problems and dropped out of 
school. In the meantime he had back 
surgery which was deemed successful. 

Despite Cuda's acknowledged talent. 
Carden is adopting a wait-and-see at- 
titude toward the starting quarterback 
position. 

"We've got four good quarterbacks 
in Garrett Robinson, Mike Brodowici, 
Craig Taylor, and Gary Minson," said 
Carden. "Cuda has some catching up 
to do, and he'll have to beat out our 
returnees to win a starring job." 

Among the transfers are Donnie 
Donovant, a 6-8, 265-pound defensive 
tackle who was at Duke, and John 
Duffcll, a 5-10.175-pound runningbnck 
who was at UNC. 



NAIA Area 
Results 

The Elon baseball team lost to 
Northern Kentucky 3-2 in the cham- 
pionship game of the NAIA Area 
Tournament in Bluefield, W. Va., 
Sunday, May 12. The Christians had 
defeated Northern Kentucky 13-9 in 
an earlier game. 

There is still a possibility that the 
Elon team will receive an at-large bid 
to the NAIA Nationals in Idaho, May 

27-June I. 



Elon Nine 
Wins 

Conference 
District Titles 

The Elon College baseball team 
wrapped up their first regular season 
under Coach Rick Jones with cham- 
pionships in Carolinas Conference and 
NAIA District 26 play. 

Jones has also been named Coach of 
the Year in both the conference and 
the district. 

The team finished 33-5 overall, 22-3 
in District 26 and 15-3 in the con- 
ference. They entered the District 
Championship held at Greensboro's 



S ports 



War Memorial Stadium on May 3-4 as 
the top seed, scheduled to play fourth- 
seeded Atlantic Christian College in 
the opener. - 

The winner of the District 26 tour- 
nament will advance to NAIA area 
finals in Bluefield, W. Va., May 17-18. 
The national championship tourna- 
ment is scheduled for May 27-June I 
at Lewis Clark State College in 
Lewiston, Idaho. Should the team 
make it to that tournament, they 
would be the first from Elon to do so. 

Four players received post-season 
conference and district honors. 
Maurice "Mo" Morton. Jeff Neufang, 
John Driscoll, and Greg Harris were 
named to the All-Conference team. 
Morton, Driscoll, and Harris were 
cited for All-District honors.

Tennis, Golf 
Wrap-up 



Golf 

The Elon golf team, coached by Bill 
Morningstar and led by senior Barry 
Pilson, had a fine season, finishing in 
second place in both conference and 
district tournaments. 

In the district tournament held at 
Campbell College April 14-16, the 
Christians were in second place going 
into the final round and after nine 
holes had captured the lead. Rain. 
however, forced the cancellation of the 
day's round, and scores were reverted 
to the previous day, leaving the team 
with a second place finish. 

The season's record was still good 
enough to make an alternate's bid to 
the NAIA National Championship 
tournament a possibility for the Elon 
team. The Christians won the national 
title in 1982. 



Men's Tennis 

The Fighting Christian men's tennis 
team wrapped up their regular season 
with a fourth place finish in both 
district and conference tournaments. 

Players Jeff Hooks and Duane 
Johnson advanced to the semi-finals in 
doubles in the District tournament and 
were named to the All-District team. 

Coached by Steve Rickard, filling in 
for Danny Morrison, who resigned to 
accept a post at Wofford College, the 
team finished with a respectable 12-4-1 
record for the season. 

Women's Tennis 

Coach Karen Garden's women's 
tennis team placed fourth in the 
Carolinas Conference tournament and 
tied for fifth in the District 26 playoff. 

The doubles team of Cindy Wall 
and Missy Jones placed second in the 
third flight of District tournament 
doubles play. 

The team's overall record for the 
season was 9-7. They were 4-3 in con- 
ference plav and 6-5 in the district.

one of the oldest veterans in Alamance 
County. 

Though he'll be 89 years old this 
month, many exact daces and details 
about his Army days are still clear as 
fresh water. Few war memories are 
murky to the former principal, school 
superintendent, Elon College alumni 
director and soldier. 

With coaxing, he puts on his rusty 
old green Army helmet. "Does it look 
silly?" he asks, mildly embarrassed. 
Then he sits for the young photo- 
grapher with proud dignity, holding 
his olive green battle blouse in front of 
his chest. It's so old it is about to fall 
apart. 

There's a box of memorabilia: aerial 
photographs of landscapes pockmarked 
by shelling; pictures of ships he sailed 
on; a huge canvas map showing troop 
movements in Belgium. Several "con- 
fidential" rfianuals. Two old rolled 
leggings. 

Decades before the hearing aid and 
slight limp, long before his days in 
education, a 21-Year-old Terrell was 
working in a west Burlington hosiery 
mill. 

America called; the first world war 
had begun. "There wasn't much 
rhoice," Terrell recalls, eyes sparkling 
behind his glasses. "I was subject to 
the draft. Ir\stead of waiting for it I 
took the realistic view. I felt 1 would 
be in one way -or another." 

He also remembers the "patriotic fer- 
vor was at a high level. We felt we 
had to go." 

One easy date for the Cedar Grove 
native to remember is May 26, 1917, 
when he joined the 120th Infantry 
unit under Capt. Don E. Scott of 
Graham. Scott later became a general 
before leaving duty. 

The Alamance County company 
headquarters was on the third floor of 
the Moser-McDonald Building, he 
remembers. 

Though he didn't have any musical 
experience, Terrell was recruited to 
play the alto horn in the infantry 
band. "The bass horn goes BOOM 
and the alto goes poof," he chuckles. "I 
wasn't much of a musi^iian." 

Few of the band members could read 
sheet music. They practiced by 
parading up and down the streets of 
Graham. "Peoples ears are still hur- 
tin '," Terrell laughs. 



That September the 1 20th was sent 
to Camp Sevier in Greenville, 
S.C, to join the "Old Hickory" 
JOth Division for training, Terrell also 
spent time in Company M in Durham 
where he was selected for army in- 
telligence as part of a team of 
observers. 

Terrell was shipped out to England 
and by June 1918, he joined the 30th 
Divisional Headquarters in Calais, 
France. That July, he began observa- 
tion work in Ypres, Belgium. By 
August he was promoted to corporal. 

Terrell's job was to report enemy ac- 
tivity, including troop movements, 
planes or balloons during the day or 
signal lights at night. Observers set up 
posts in trenches or abandoned French 
chateaus. 

The first night they were assigned to 
a British unit in Ypres for observation 
duty, they saw the British soldier in 
charge of the carrier pigeons get killed. 
Ypres was shelled heavily throughout 
the remainder of the war, he notes. 

The 30th Division later took part in 
the most decisive operation of the war, 
the Sept. 29, 1918, assault on the 
Hindenburg Line. Until the Allies 
broke through, the Germans con- 
sidered it impregnable. 

Terrell's strongest memories of the 
war came from that day when troops, 
tanks, and artillery rallied to the 
assault. 

He clearly recalls "the terrible 
slaughter that day," he said. "I saw 
many of my former buddies in Com- 
pany M pretty well shot up." 

"It was terrible seeing not only our 
wounded come back but the German 
prisoners who were also wounded," he 
continued. "When you reflect on it, it 
was the worst part of the war." 

From that day on. the Allies ad- 
vanced under withering fire from 
German machine-gunners cover- 
ing their troops' retreat. 

"They're supposed to stick with the 
machine guns until they died," he add- 
ed. "Those gunners were something 
else." 

The 30th Division soon saw con- 
tinued action during the Battle of 
Montbrehain and the Battle of La 
Selle River. 

Some days they trudged along with 
the battle units or rode bicycles, 
burdened with telescopes, maps and 
field glasses, and .45-caliber handguns. 

"So far as I know, I never killed 
anyone," he says, with a hint of pride 
"I hope I never did." 

But he admits being afraid. "Oh 
yes," he says, nodding. "You always 
felt you were in a situation where 
anything could happen."' 




A doughbi 



th World War I 



During war, the enemy is usually 
perceived as inhuman. But Terrell 
discovered otherwise when he guarded 
some German prisoners. 

"Most of them could speak English. 
They didn't want war anymore than 
we did," he remembers. "No country 
wanted it. Most of the people didn't 
want war. But there was no way to 
help it." 

He paused peering out the window 
of his Elon College home. 

"When It was over, we thought it 
would never happen again — that people 
would be too smart." 

The worst experience he had was 
chemical warfare. He remembers 
mustard gas was "terrible.. .it eats your 
skin," 

The war ended April 8, 1919. for 
Terrell when he was discharged 
at Camp Jackson, S.C. He 
returned to the hosiery mill and later 
entered Elon College, graduating in 
1925 to become principal of a Gaston 
County high school. 

By the time World War U again em- 
broiled the globe in conflict, he was 
principal of Elon High School, where 
he met his second wife. By the end of 
the "Big One," he was superintendent 
of Wadesboro City Schools and later 
of Warren County Schools. 



He then came to Elon College as 
director of alumni affairs and after 
retirement was appointed a magistrate, 
serving at the Burlington Police stat- 
ion for five years. He also served as a 
small claims court judge for three 
years until 1976, 

Terrell is also a Mason, a Shriner, 
and a member of both the Woodmen 
of the World and the Scottish Rite 
Order.

6 The Magazine of Elon May, 1985 



Elon's Mother Superior 



Emma Lewis, friend and confidante 
to a generation, plans to retire 



By Moses Crutchfieid 



For more than a quarter of 
a century, Emma Lewis' 
door — and heart — has been 
open to confused or discouraged 
students seeking answers to their ques- 
tions and solutions to their problems. 
During that time, a generation of Elon 
students discovered they could turn to 
her to find the loving, eating advice 
they sought. 

In her quiet, low-key way, the 
slender lady, now graying and showing 
only slight effects from a bad fall 
several years ago. has given them the 
help — the big smile — they needed. 

It might have been only a matter of 
straightening out a mixed-up schedule. 
It might have been simply checking on 
an income tax return. It could have 
been helping a student find a campus 
job, or it might have been locating 
scholarship funds for a distressed stu- 
dent in need of financial aid. Or it 
could have been just the act of patting 
someone on the shoulder and offering 
them a few well-chosen words of cheer. 

NX'hatever — and there were times 
when the wisdom of a "Dear Abby" 
was required — Emma Lewis has loved 
every moment of those years she's 
spent at Elon looking after her 
"children," The frequency with which 
alumni, back on campus, come by to 
exchange greetings is proof enough 
that these "children" remember and 
are graceful for the help and advice she 
offered them years ago. 

Remembered David Vaughn, a 
former student and friend: "She always 
was effective, pleasant and encouraging 
in her relationships with students. She 
always had the time to listen to a stu- 
dent's problems. And she knew how 
to get something done. If she couldn't 
do it herself, she knew where to go to 
get it done. 

"A lot of students may not have 
known her by name, but they knew 
her by sight — her office was in 
Alamance Building at the time — and 
they felt free to call upon her, 

"She was very much a people- 
oriented person. She .thrived on con- 
tact with people. I would say she was a 
very effective ambassador for the col- 
lege." 

That spirit of interest and caring 
which leaves such an indelible 
impression upon young people 
still is there as Mrs, Lewis approaches 
retirement. If her target date holds up, 
she'll be closing her desk in the Office 
of Development on September 30, 
1985 to join her husband, Charles 
Lewis, who is scheduled for retirement 
from Burlington Industries on the same 
day. There is a possibility that Mrs. 
Lewis may stick around another week 
to make it an even 2? years at Elon. 
She and hor husband both have timed 



their retirements for the moment when 
annual 'reports and fiscal years are 
behind them. She has no definite 
plans for retirement. "The first six 
months," she said, "I'll spend cleaning 
out my house fi-om the basement up. 
After that's done, then I'll be ready to 
think about something else." 

In her years at Elon, Mrs. Lewis has 
watched thousands of students come 
and go. And time, she has observed, 
has brought notable changes in the 
make-up of Elon's student body, in its 
faculty and in the nature of the cam- 
pus atmosphere. She was witness to 
the unrest of the Vietnam years, to 
the breaking of new ground with in- 
tegration on campus and to the 
dramatic shift in attitudes that marks 
today's student. Elon weathered the 
many crises well, she said. 

"During those early years of the 
1%0's, there were a lot of desperate 
boys on campus because of the Viet- 
nam war," said Mrs. Lewis. There 
were also a lot of night school 
students, veterans on the GI bill. Then 
came the unrest of the late '60's and 
70's. 

"Elon was fortunate," Mrs. Lewis 
noted. "We had only a minimum of 
disturbance." That she credits, in large 
part, to the "firm hand" of Dr. J. Earl 
Danieley, Elon's president. 

Since the uncertainty of those days, 
she's witnessed students make a 
"180-degree turn in their attitudes." 
She watched integration work to the 
point that a black was elected presi- 
dent of a student body that not too 
many years before was completely 
white. 

She has seen requirements for both 
students and fatuity strengthened, and 
she has seen changes in the nature of 
the college's mission and in its connec- 
tions with the church. 



Since 1979 Emma Lewis has been 
assigned to the Office of 
Development located in the 
Powell Administration Building. She 
has missed the direct contact with 
students that she once had because the 
Powell Building is off their beaten 
path. 

"For years I was in The Alamance 
Building where students passed all the 
time. My door was never closed and 
students were dropping in all along. It 
isn't that way now because the 
Development Office is out of the area 
where students circulate," she said. 

Along the way, Mrs. Lewis once was 
responsible for all the duplicating done 
by the college, including faculty and 
staff. 




A dasiic Emrruj Lcu'ii pose: listening to a siudcni. 



"I really was popular in those days," 
she said with a laugh, "because I had 
copies of all the exams." 

Mrs. Lewis also served as secretary 
to the faculty in the days when she 
was doing the duplicating job. 

For the last several years, she has 
carried the title of Records and 
Research secretary. Her job has been 
to research and establish records for 
the alumni association, for en- 
dowments, and for scholarships. 

"There was a need for more com- 
plete scholarship and endowment 
records when I came in here," she 
said. "I went back and checked all the 
files. I read folders of all the college's 
presidents and 1 talked to people in an 
effort to get additional information," 
she said. Today, Elon has files for all 
those things. 

Mrs.. Lewis, a native of Dunn, 
N.C., and the youngest of five 
sisters, attended the University 
of North Carolina at Greensboro and 
took the secretarial course offered 
there. (It was known as Woman's Col- 
lege then.) She went Co work for Burl- 
ington Mills in the Burlington 
transportation office in 1940, met her 
husband-to-be there and was married 
in January 1942. Six months later, her 
husband was called into service and 
she went to Wilmington to live with a 
sister and work in the personnel 
department of the North Carolina 
Shipbuilding Company. They returned 



to Burlington, January 1, 1946. Then, 
following the birth of children Jane 
and John, she went to work on a part- 
time basis for Dr. Robert Benson, then 
dean of students, in 1958. 

That, of course, led to a full-time 
job. 

Of all the people Mrs. Lewis has en- 
countered at Elon, the fondest 
memories are of Dr. A.L, Hook — as 
they are for many others who have at- 
tended and worked at Elon. 

'Fessor Hook certainly left him im- 
print upon Elon," she said. "He loved 
the school. Alumni always looked for 
him when they came back. His loss 
was a tremendous blow, both in the 
strength of his own personality and in 
the ties he represented for those 
generations which he knew in the span 
of the years he was here." 

-The college annual of 1970 was 
dedicated to Emma Lewis. 

"In recognition and appreciation of 
an individual's service to Elon, the Phi 
Psi Cli editors have set aside this page. 
The award is made in tribute to one 
who has made an exceptional efl^ort in 
promoting understanding, good will 
and knowledge.. .in fijrthering the goals 
of Elon College," 

It was a fine tribute in 1970, and 
still is today. Emma Lewis will be miss- 
ed when she retires.

Denton: Where 
The Action Is

Forum Foundation is a non-partisan 
research and educational foundation 
whose purpose is to facilitate and 
develop consensus on policy issues 
relating to the integrity of the fami-

Denton, a native of Lakehurst, 
New Jersey, was Elon Student 
Government president in 1972-73. 
He is on the Executive Committee 
of the Elon Alumni Association and

Second Powell 
Professorship Is 
Endowed 



A new endowed professorship has 
been established at Elon College, and 
Dr. John Sullivan has been named to 
the position. 

The Maude Sharpe Powell Professor- 
ship was endowed bv gifts from Dr. 
Thomas E. Powell, III, John S. Powell, 
J,D., and Dr. James B. Powell in 
memory of their mother, the late 
Maude Sharpe Powell, a 1921 graduate 
of the college. It is the second Powell 
professorship at Elon. TTie Thomas E. 
Powell, jr. Professorship, currently held 
by Dr, J. Earl Danieley, was established 
in 1978 by gifts from Dr. Powell, Jr. 
and members of his family- 

In establishing the new professorship, 
the brothers are also honoring their 
uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. J. Hin- 
ton Rountree. Mrs. Rountree, the 
former Clara ("Joni") Sharpe, is the 
sifter of Maude Sharpe Powell. Mr. 
Rountree has been an influential 
member of the college's Board of 
Trustees since 1955 and served for 
manv years as chairman of the Finan- 




Dr. John Sullivan 

cial Affairs Committee. Both were 
graduated from Elon, he in 1933 and 
she in 1931. 

"We are once again indebted to the 
Powell family for their generosity, vi- 
sion and commitment," said Dr. Fred 
Young, president of Elon, in announc- 
ing the professorship. "In continuing 
the tradition of leadership, service and 
philanthropy begun by their father and 
mother, they ensure vitality and quali- 
ty for this institution." 

A native of Bellemont in Alamance 
County, Sophia Maude Sharpe was a 
noted chemistry scholar and athlete 
while a student at Elon. After her 
marriage to Dr. Powell, Jr., she was a 
resident of the Town of Eton College 
for more than 20 years before her un- 
timely death in September, 1944. A 
leader in religious, civic and social ac- 
tivities, she particularly enjoyed her

membership in the Women's Mis- 
sionary Society of the Elon College 
Community Church and served as that 
group's president for a number of 
years. 

Dr. John Sullivan, professor of 
philosophy at Elon since 1970, has 
been selected by the college as the first 
to hold the Maude Sharpe Powell 
chair. 

"Dr. Sullivan's credentials are impec- 
cable," said Dr. Young in announcing 
the appointment. "As a scholar, 
thinker, and leader, he is superb. 
However, the primary factor in his 
selection was his effectiveness as a 
teacher. Willingly assuming the role of 
mentor, counselor and friend to his 
students, he exemplifies the ideal for a 
liberal arts institution." 

Dr. Sullivan is a graduate of Catholic 
University, from which he earned both 
the B.A. and M.A. degrees. He also 
holds a JC.D. degree from Lateran 
University in Rome. Italy, and a Ph.D. 
from the University of North Carolina 
at Chape! Hill. In 1976-77 he was Lilly 
Scholar in the Humanities at Duke 
University. In 1980 he was awarded the 
Daniels-Danieley Award for Excellence 
in Teaching at Elon. 

A noted speaker and lecturer. Dr. 
Sullivan has given over 60 talks, 
workshops and other public presenta- 
tions throughout North Carolina and 
in other states. He has also acted as 
consultant for the National Endow- 
ment for the Humanities (NEH), the 
N.C. Humanities Committee, the N.C. 
Nurses Association, the UNC-G 
Department of Education and the 
Traditional Acupuncture Institute of 
Columbia, Maryland. 

He is the editor of The Storied World: 
A Medieval Reader, which was written 
as a part of the NEH Measure of Man 
project. He is also the author of two 
essays in Scfiools and Meanings: £ssa>s 
on the Moral hJature of Schoo/inj;, edited 
by David Purpel and H. Svi Shapiro 
and published in 1984 by University 
Press of America. 



Study Abroad 
Expands to Full 

Semester 

By Meredith Lee *86 

Beginning this fall, Elon College 
students will have the opportunity to 
live and study abroad for an entire 
semester. Through the Study Abroad 
Program, the fall semester 1985. begin- 
ning August 19 and ending December 
16. will be spent in England. 

"This is the ISth year of Elon's 
Winter Term Abroad Program," said Dr. 
Bill Rich, Coordinator of the Study 
Abroad Program. "We see the fall 
semester as expanding the opportunity 
for students to study abroad." 

Elon is working in conjunction with 
the Guilford College Study Abroad 
Program to provide an educational ex- 
perience for 19 Elon students and 38 
Guilford students. The program is 
designed to tap the artistic, historical, 
political, cultural as well as educational 
resources in London. It is offered for 
the regular cost of tuition, room and 
board, plus airfare. 

Upon arriving in London, the 
students will begin their cultural ex- 
perience with a five-day orientation to 
the city. Classes will begin the follow- 
ing Monday, August 26, at the London 
headquarters of the Friend's Society in 
the center of the city. 

Students may enroll for 12 to 16 
credit hours. Courses will be offered in 
fine arts, political science, English, 
philosophy, and history— all centered 
around British culture. 

The courses will be taught by faculty 
members of the Courtald Institute, 
London Polytechnic, University of Lon- 
don, Guilford College, Eastman's 
Polytechnic, Wellcome Institute and 
Elon College. 

Under the leadership of Elon pro- 
fessor Will Migniuolo and Guilford 
professor Martha Cooley, the students 
will reside in the Hotel Edward and 



the Edward Apartments, near Hyde 
Park. Classes will be held four days a 
week providing three-day weekends. A 
two-week fall break is scheduled for 
October 11-27 to allow time for travel 
to the continent. 

Rich said that his office has alteady 
begun to recruit students for the fall of 
'86. Students are accepted into the pro- 
gram if they have a sound grade point 
average and recommendaciofi from a 
faculty member. 

Waller Receives 
Faculty Award 

"Teaching is the arc of assisting 
discovery."— Mark van Doren 

An inquiring mind, a thirst for 
truth, a respect for others— these are' 
the methods Dr. Bruce Waller, assistant 
professor of philosophy, carries into the 
classroom and the methods that earned 
for him the 1984-85 Daniels-Danieley 
Award for Excellence in "leaching, 
Elon's most coveted award for faculty. 

"His aim is always to share the 
knowledge and to encourage true learn- 
ing," wrote one of Waller's students in 
nominating him for the award. 

A colleague wrote, "Ever seeking to 
involve students in spirited discussion, 
he . . . displays the courage to follow 
atguments wherever they may lead." 

Waller agrees that discussion suits his 
purposes best. "I am not so much con- 
cerned that the students who take my 
classes leave with a formed philosophy." 
he says. "I would prefei that they leave 
feeling less certain of what they 
believe, 

"I hope the class will make them 
think more carefully and critically 
about their beliefs, will make them 
question whether their beliefs form a 
coherent and consistent set." 

The classroom, in Wallet's view, is "a 
good time to practice thinking." Hence, 
he uses discussion freely. 

"I also find it worthwhile to listen to 
what the students have to say." he 
adds. "Very often they take angles on 
things that 1 hadn't seen before. They 
bring a different perspective." 

Waller is a graduate of Louisiana 
Technical University. He received his 
master's and Ph.D. degrees in 
philosophy from the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has 
taught at Elon since 1978 and current- 
ly serves as chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Philosophy. 

Waller retains an avid interest in 
research and writing. He has had 
several articles published in scholarly 
journals and is currently working on 
another, which, he says, is basically a 
defense of the logical-positivist ap- 
proach to ethics. 

Waller is the thirteenth recipient of 
the Daniels-Danieley Award, which was 
established by Dr. J. Earl Danieley and 
his wife. Verona Daniels Danieley, in 
honor of their parents.

Chapter News 

Fayetteville Alumni 

On Saturday e\'ening, June 1, about 
30 alumni gathered for a party at the 
Green Valley Golf and Country Club 
in Fayetteville. North Carolina. This 
was the first alumni social held in this 
area in nearly a decade and repre- 
sented the first step in re-establishing a 
viable chapter to serve this part of the 
state. 

Several guests at this social were con- 
temporaries who were pleasantly sur- 
prised to greet classmates they had not 
seen since their days at Elon. The 
group enjoyed a variety of "munchies" 
and danced on the terrace overlooking 
the 18th fairway to music provided by 
a disc jockey. 

This social was organized by Cooper 
Mattocks '79 and promoted by several 
other local alumni. Plans are being 
made to sponsor an informal get- 
together later this year. 

Other Summer Socials 

At pre^stime the Suffolk and 
Virginia Beach chapters of the Elon 
College Alumni Association had filed 
plans to co-sponsor a social at the Suf- 
folk Swimming Pool in Suffolk on 
Saturday evening, August 3. Suffolk 
Chapter President B.J. Riddick Crigger 
'76 and Virginia Beach President 
Henry Pitlman '72 are in charge of the 
arrangements for this second annual af- 
fair for Tidewater Virginia Elon sup- 
porters. Chapter-sponsored gatherings 
may also be scheduled in Richmond. 
Charlotte, and Forsyth County. 
N.C. Alumni and friends of the college 
in all of these areas should watch their 
mail for the details.

Dr. John D. Messick '22 looks 
back on his long and distinguished 
career as an educator 



By Moses Crutchfield 

In the late 1930's and early 1940's 
when the main concern ac Elon 
College was the ongoing fight for its 
financial life, one man was busy con- 
centrating on preserving and enhancing 
academic standards, making certain 
that the vineyards of learning planted 
by the college's founders did not 
wither and die- 
Ultimately, according to history's 
judgment, he achieved that goal, even 
surpassed it. Elon emerged from its 
financial tribulations with its academic 
standards intact. The groundwork was 
in place for the college to begin, when 
the time was propitious, a period of 
enormous growth, physically and 
academically. 

The man whose work influenced 
Elon's future as a place of learning so 
greatly was Dr. John Decatur Messick, 
dean of his alma mater from 1935 until 
1944. His service during those perilous 
limes chat encompassed the end of the 
Great Depression and the outbreak of 
World War II was a labor of love by his 
own words. 

As testimony to his abilities as an 
educator. Dr. Messick later served a 
much larger institution as president for 
13 years, was chairman of a highly im- 
portant national collegiate committee 
and then capped a distinguished career 
m the field of higher education by 
planning and overseeing installation of 
[he curriculum at one of America's 
unique universities. His record and 
achievements in educarion stand vir- 
tually alone among the list of Elon 
graduates who have chosen that field 
for a career. 

Today, at age 87, Dr. Messick, by 
choice, lives alone in a two-bedroom 
apartment on the fringes of the Cape 
Fear Country Club golf course in 
Wilmington. His wife, the former 
Magdalene Robinson, died several years 
ago. Typical of his spirit of in- 
dependence, he prefers his own 
residence to homes of his children. A 
daughter, Helen Margaret Willets (Mrs. 
Frederick), and son, John Messick, 
both live in Wilmington. Another 
daughter, Rose Melvin. (Mrs. Julius 
Lyman Melvin, Jr.), lives in Raleigh 
and another son, Norval, in San Fran- 
ciso. A third son, a handicapped child, 
died in his teens. 

Dr. Messick retains much of the erect 
and imposing bearing that was 
characteristic of him in younger days. 
In recent years, though, health pro- 
blems have arisen. A detached retina 
cost sight in one eye. A year ago a 
congestive heart condition slowed his 
pace considerably. However, he still 
moves reasonably spritely and con- 
tinues to drive his own car during 



daylight hours. The sharp, dry wit th.ir 
one remembers from other days 
manifests itself from time to time at 
testing to his alertness. 

In retrospect, Dr. Messick's respon- 
sibilities at Elon probably helped 
prepare him for greater ones later at 
what is now East Carolina University 
and at Oral Roberts University. 

"Dr. (L.E.) Smith, Elon's president 
then, left the curriculum to me," said 
Dr, Messick. "I worked with each 
department separately, giving each man 
an opportunity to present his own 
ideas. After thorough evaluation, the 
ideas, if good enough, would be 
presented to the faculty which approv- 
ed or rejected them. In this way we im- 
proved the curriculum. Most of the 
courses of study were good when I 
came to Elon but we made improve- 
ment a continuing process," 

Dr. Messick commented, "We had a 
good faculty when I was at Elon. We 
had more than our share of doctorates. 
It was a strong faculty." 

And, continuing, "Professor (A,L.) 
Hook served as dean before I went to 
Elon, He moved over to the office of 
registrar when I came. What his feel- 
ings were, I don't know, but there was 
never a cross word between the two of 
us. He certainly was one of the finest 
people I've ever known," 

Dr. Messick tells the story of how he 
got back to Elon as a member of the 
faculty at the college he was graduated 
from in 1922 at the age of 25: 

"In the summer of 1934, I was 
leaching at the Northern Presbyterian 
College in Asheville. Meanwhile, I was 
looking for a college position, I had 
heard of one in Florida and I visited 
there one weekend. They liked me and 
I liked them and I accepted an associ- 
ate professorship to begin in the fall. 

"When I returned to Asheville, I 
found a letter from Dr. Smith re- 
questing that I meet him in a hotel in 
Salisbury the next Saturday afternoon, 
which I did. The job that was open 
was that of dean. When I arrived in 
Salisbury, Mrs. Smith was with her 
husband and we talked together for a 
while. Then she smiled broadly and ex- 
cused herself so Dr. Smith and I could 
talk alone. Later, she told me the smile 
was to let Dr, Smith know that she ap- 
proved. She was a great gal! 

"Inasmuch as I was a graduate of 
Elon, the job was special to me. We 
were happy there, I loved Elon then 
and still do. I regarded the job of 
academic dean as a challenge," 

That, quite possibly, was the reason 
Dr. Messick settled upon the Elon job 
when he might have sought and 
secured other positions that were 
higher in prestige and paid more than 




the $3,500 annual salary. After 
finishing at Elon, Dr. Messick did sum- 
mer school work at UNC— Chapel 
Hill, Columbia and finally New York 
University where he received his doc- 
torate in education in 1934. At NYU, 
he chalked up all "A" grades and 
received a letter stating that he was 
one of the best graduate students they 
had ever had. At that time, 31,000 
students were enrolled in the universi- 
ty. Later on, Dr. Messick was president 
of the NYU Alumni Association. 

Dr. Messick came to Elon as a stu- 
dent from Aurora in the eastern part 
of the state because at the time he 
wanted to become a minister. In thum- 
bing through college magazines, he 
came across one on Elon, liked what 
he saw, arranged a conference with Dr. 
W.A. Harper, then president, and "lov- 
ed him." 

"The first year at Elon I took New 
Testament Greek and New Testament 



from the chairman of the department, 
Dr. Q.U.) Newman, probably as good a 
teacher as 1 ever knew," he noted. 

When Dr, Messick left Elon in 
1944 to become dean at New 
Jersey State Teachers coliege in Mont- 
clair, N.J., a situation was brewing at 
East Carolina Teachers College in 
Greenville that eventually would bring 
his return to his native state. East 
Carolina, once mainly a teachers col- 
lege for women, was experiencing all 
kinds of problems, including a financial 
scandal. Several educators were given a 
shot at straightening out the situation 
but none fully succeeded. Finally, 
when Dr. Dennis Cooke, a former 
president at High Point College, who 
had made some strides, gave up. Dr. 
Messick was called upon to take the 
job. He accepted and left Montclair,

in the state....** 



taking with him a former Marine, Leo 
Jenkins, who became his dean at East 
Carolina. Jenkins later succeeded 
Mossick as president. 

There is no question but what Dr. 
Messick laid out the course for East 
Carolina's emergence as a full-fledged 
university, complete with a four-year 
medical school. True, it was Dr. Jenkins 
who later aligned the political forces 
and battled the legislature for establish- 
ment of the medical school, but It was 
Dr. Messick who did the preliminary 
work. He was the first to envision a 
two-year medical school as a possibility, 
for example. 

As early as 1953. he was telling the 
legislature that East Carolina should he 
permitted to assume the proportions of 
a university. He did succeed in getting 
the name changed from East Carolina 
Teachers College to East Carolina Col- 
lege. For the first time, master's degrees 
were offered in the liberal arts program. 
The basic science program was 
strengthened, and a huge extension 
service was instituted with special at- 
tention to [he Cherry Point and Camp 
Lt-jeune Marine bases. Eventually, the 
off-campus program included 22 
centers. 

Admission standards were advanced 
during Dr. Messick's tenure and enroll- 
ment soared from 1,600 students to 
6,500 in 13 years. The college became 
the first in the southeast to offer 
courses via commercial television. Dr. 
Messick, incidentally, was in the 
forefront of those participating in the 
successful effort to get Voice of 
America transmitters located in 
Greenville. 

Obstacles frequently popped up to 
hinder Dr, Messick's efforts to bring 
adequate facilities to the East Carolina 
campus. For, example, early-on he was 
able to get funds for a new library. 
That was fine, but, because of the war, 
no structural steel was available on the 
market. After Gov. Kerr Scott and his 
administrative assistant D.S. Coltrane, 
were unable to do anything about the 
situation. Dr. Messick approached an 
acquaintance and friend in high 
government circles. The result was East 
Carolina's first new building under Dr. 
Messick. 

Getting money out of the legislature 
frequently was a hassle, too. On one 
occasion. Dr. Messick sent several pret- 
ty co-eds to Raleigh, armed with 
baskets of camellia blooms to pin on 
the lapels of legislators, hoping they 
would give favorable attention to bills 
affecting East Carolina. 

"It took a lot of fighting and much 
persuasion to get appropriations for im- 
provements to the campus," he remark- 
ed. Yet, as the college grew, he con- 
tinued to add new dormitories and 
other buildings to the college's 
facilities. 

Eventually, the legislative battles 
took their toll. Saying he was, "Tired 
of being tired," Dr. Messick handed in 
his resignation effective in early 1960. 
His work and his leadership were 
saluted by the press and by powerful 
political figures, but to him, the most 
touching, meaningful tribute came from 
the East Carolina student newspaper: 



"By pouring himself heart and soul 
into his work, he built a little teachers 
college into one of the finest places of 
learning in the state. . .he is great be- 
cause he cared." 

In 1981, the university dedicated an 
enlarged and refurbished theater arts 
center "to one of the most dynamic 
and colorful leaders in the institution's 
74-vear history." 

While at East Carolina, Dr. Messick 
came to know S. Lee Braxton, mayor 
of the nearby town of Whiteville and 
chairman of the board of First Na- 
tional Bank there. That acquain- 
tanceship led to a series of happenings 
that capped the career of Dr. Messick 
as an educator. 

After leaving East Carolina, Dr, 
Messick worked briefly with the 
U.S. Office of Education, supervising 
its activities in the southeastern states. 
Then, he was persuaded to go to work 
for Congress as a research specialist. 
From there, he came out of retirement 
to serve as dean of instruction at Ver- 
mont State College, where he was 
handed the assignment of revising the 
college's curriculum. 

Meanwhile, Braxton, the former 
mayor, made his fortune and joined up 
as an associate of Evangelist Oral 
Roberts. When Roberts decided to 
found and build his university in 
Tulsa, one of his needs was for a per- 
son with expert knowledge of a univer- 
sity's curriculum and of how buildings 
should be planned for greatest efficien- 
cy in teaching. Braxton thought im- 
mediately of his old friend. Dr. 
Messick. 

For a while, Dr. Messick served as 
consultant and retained his position at 
Vermont State, but in July 1963 he 
joined Oral Roberts as dean and ex- 
ecutive vice president of a university 
that at the moment was little more 
than 3 dream. It was here that Dr. 
Messick did what he calls his "most 
creative work." 

His responsibilities included develop- 
ing the curricula, composing the col- 
lege catalog and faculty handbook, set- 
ting standards for student admission 
and devising various bulletins. He in- 
terviewed and recommended faculty 
and personnel employment and advis- 
ed with the architects on the appoint- 
ments of various buildings. 

Dr, Messick reached deep into his 
years of experience to make the univer- 
sity one of the country's most-up-to- 
date in the way of curriculum and 
facilities. His experience as a member 
of the National Accreditation Commit- 
tee of the American Association of 
Colleges and Universities carried him 
onto campuses across the country. He 
gleaned the best of ideas from that ex- 
perience and combined them with 
others he had left over from his days 
as superintendent of the Spencer 
schools and as a principal at Trenton 
and South River. 

The result was the crown jewel of 
the Oral Roberts University campus, 
the John D. Messick Learning 
Resources Center. It's a unique six- 



story learning complex with a highly 
sophisticated information and retrieval 
system for both students and pro- 
fessors. It provides four-and-one-half 
acres of classroom, library, offices and 
other related facilities. One of its 
features is an electronic projection 
system whereby a professor can call up 
or record whatever he desires. Lectures 
are on tape. Two electrical engineers 
were engaged to carry out Dr. 
Messick's ideas. The completed 
$10-million building was called by the 
Ford Foundation "one of the most 
creative facilities on the American cam- 
pus today." 

From out of an experience at the 
age of 19, Dr. Messick developed 

a strong, life-long philosophy of 
religion. Thus, a conflict between his 
intellectual and Roberts' fundamental 
approach to the spiritual might have 
been expected. 

"I see no contradiction in religion 
and intellectuality," said Dr. Messick. 
"Basically all religious denominations 
believe in Christ. I know there is a 
heaven. I know there is a Christ. I 
never feel alone. I know that He is 
with me. If intellect puts those beliefs 
there, then what is the contradiction?" 

Dr, Messick tells the story of how he 
once kidded Oral Roberts that if he 
(Roberts) would like to transfer to the 
Methodist Church without a 
ministerial degree, then "I might be 
able to get the conference to accept 
him. He took me up on it and today is 
a member of the largest Methodist 
church in Tulsa, although he never 
changed his faith in action." 

Later Oral Roberts wrote: "We are so 
very grateful and we give God thanks 
for finding you at a very strategic time 
in the life of Oral Roberts University. 
Your contacts, your experience, your 
know-how and ability were the things 
that put us on the right track. You 
helped us lay a good foundation and 
our strong academic courses are due to 
your great strength." 

In retirement. Dr. Messick is as ac- 
tive as health permits. He is a member 
of a number of organizations and earn- 
ed a national 10-year award for service 
to add to the many accorded him in 
his career. He is close to his children, 
grandchildren and great grandchildren. 
He is happy about Elon's growth and 
thinks that church-related colleges will 
survive and should be kept distinctive. 

Of his life, he says, "1 don't know 
that I would do anything differently if 
it could be done over today." 

A key to that life might be found in 
a statement by Aristotle long ago; "All 
who have meditated on the art of 
governing mankind have been convinc- 
ed that the fate of empires depends on 
the education of youth."

The Year in 
Review 

By Alan Wooten *87 

Even without a national championship 
or [he Joby Hawn Cup. Elon made 
great strides in its athletic program 
during 1984-85 and the advances will 
continue to show next year. 
Baseball 

The biggest story of the year was the 
Elon baseball team. The Christians 
were picked to finish second in the 
conference and district races. With a 
never-say-die attitude, the Christians 
romped through league opposition to 
the regular season Carolinas Con- 
ference and NAIA District 26 titles. 
They began tournament play by winn- 
ing the District 26 tourney and then 
finishing second in the Area Vll tour- 
nament, after losing the first game of 
the double elimination affair. 

Receiving an at-large berth into the 
NAIA National Championship Finals 
in Lewiston, Idaho, Elon finished 
seventh in the ten-team field. In the 
final poll by the NAIA the Christians 
were ranked fifth. Head Coach, Rick 
Jones, in his first year at Elon, led the 
team to a 40-10 record and was Coach 
of the Year in the conference and 
district. Many observers of Elon 
baseball over the years have called this 
the greatest team ever fielded, 

Maurice Morton, senior from 
Graham, NC, set records for career 
runs (126), career hits (185). career 
stolen bases (113), and stolen bases in a 
season (58). Pitcher John Driscoll set a 
new career record at Elon with 26 
wins, breaking a 55-year-old record set 
by CV. "Lefty" Briggs in the late 20s. 
Morton and junior Greg Harris were 
drafted by the San Diego Padres of the 
National League. 

In national tournament play, Elon 
opened by dropping a 6-1 decision to 
the College of St. Francis from Joliet. 
II. The Christians were the victims of 
four inning-ending doubleplays. 
Driscoll took the loss while David 
Terry and Jerry Russell, two promising 
freshmen, had two hits each. 

On Tuesday. Elon returned to 
vvinning side of the ledger, pasting 
Southern Maine, 11-5. Elon jumped 
ahead 10-1 and never looked back. Pete 
Gibson and Budgie Clark had three 
hits each and Troy Harris added two 
and three runs batted in. One of Har- 
ris' hits was a booming 400-foot 
homerun over the scoreboard in 
rightfield. Greg Harris notched the vic- 
tory, his ninth of the season. 

On Friday, Elon met with the big 
"E," elimination. Georgia College used 
a first-inning grand slam and a 
seventh-inning three-run homerun to 
put Elon away. Troy Harris added 
another homerun in rightfield and 
Russell drove in the other run with a 
double off the wall in leftfield. Greg 
McDannold, despite some good 
moments, cook the loss on the mound. 

Elon head coach Rick Jones offered 
nothing but praise for his team. "We 
accomplished a lot of things out in 
Idaho. We proved we can play some 



good baseball against some of the 
finest teams in the country. Our goal 
now is to try and rebuild our pitching 
staff and make the trip back to 
Lewiston next year." 
Soccer 

Elon also won a conference title in 
soccer and received its first All- 
American in the sport when Joe Nepay 
was named to the third team. Head 
coach Steve Ballard was named Coach 
of the Year in the conference and 
district while Nepay was Player of the 
Year. The team finished 11-7-1 and 
should contend for the conference and 
district titles this fall. 
Basketball 

Elon had another Player of the Year 
in the Winter when Robert Leak 
received the honor in basketball. Since 
then. Coach Bill Morningscar has done 
some excellent recruiting, including the 
signing of Warren Wallace from Clem- 
son, and Elon should field an excellent 
team next year. 
Football 

Elon won the NAIA District 26 foot- 
ball title in the fall. The Christians 
were unable to make the playoffs but 
finished 7-3 and were ranked 13th in 
the nation. Royce Fentress was the 
District Player of the Year and was 
drafted by the USFL Birmingham 
Stallions. Fentress was also a first team 
All-American and received Elon's 
highest athletic honor in the Basnighc 
Award. 

Golf 

Elon's golf team also did well this 
year. Although failing to make the 
playoffs for the first time since 1975, 
the Christians were ranked in the top 
ten all year. Elon was the victim of 
fluke weather in the district tourna- 
ment and missed the trip to Phoenix 
by two strokes. Tom Martine and Barry 
Pilson were named to All-Conference 
and Ail-District teams. 



Publications 
Win Awards

Department under the direction of 
Steve Ballard and with the assistance 
of Alan Wooten. has received four na- 
tional awards during the past year. 

The NAIA Sports Information Direc- 
tors' Association named Elon's football 
program third best in the nation in

program was also judged to be sixth 
best in Division I competition for 
basketball programs, the first time since 
1978-79 it has received an award. 

At the College Sports Infor- 
mation Directors' Association conven- 
tion, Elon received two more awards. 
The South Atlantic Conference 
(SAC-8) Media Guide was selected as 
the top program, while the football

USSR" you can get there f rorr 



By GREGG PAPPEI 



y«!-,*r. David Crowe, professor of 
'■^^. history at Elon College, 
could be arrested for false advertising. 
He touts his yearly Russian expedition 
as a trip. It is not a trip, not in the or- 
dinary sense of chat word; it is an 
adventure— pure adventure. Mr. 
Webster defines trip as making a 
journey. He defines adventure as an ex- 
citing and remarkable experience. Ac- 
tually, lo be fair to both Dr. Crowe 
and Mr. Webster, the Russian offering 
could best be defined as an adven- 
turous trip. 

It is surely a journey. The 1985 group 
covered close to 20,000 miles in sixteen 
days, and journeyed back and forth 
through twelve time zones. There were 
days when we lived on lime that was 
noon where we were but was midnight 
the day before at Elon College. Over 
this period of sixteen days we were in- 
volved in twelve to fouteen separate 
plane flights {depending on where one 
came from to get to New York), a 
36-hour train ride through Siberia into 
Mongolia, and a 24-hour ride back in- 
to Siberia. Those of us who dealt with 
constant time adjustments, dragging 
luggage that constantly seemed to gain 
weight (yes, Virginia, there are 
souvenirs galore in the USSR and 
Mongolia), and keeping up with planes. 
trains, and buses can attest to the fact 
that this was definitely a journey. 

On the other hand, it was definitely 
an adventure. Flying 450 miles into the 
Gobi Desert in a double prop plane 
that would land on a non-existent run- 
way is adventure. Being stranded on a 
broken bus in chat same desert and 
finally being rescued by three mongols 
who happened by in a jeep and who 
repaired the bus with a safety-pin and 
wire is strict adventure. Hearing 
soldiers walking on top of and scraping 
underneath your train, and looking 
out of the window and seeing soldiers 
carrying Ml rifles and looking grim at 
the border crossings is adventure. So is 
a Tibetan Buddhist worship experience, 
an opera sung in Russian with a 
chorus of 84 and a house that is burn- 
ed on stage, children wanting chewing 
gum at every stop, and being stared at 
constantly by everyone {we felt, at 
times like the king who had no 
clothes). So this trip was also an 
adventure; truly an exciting and 
remarkable experience. 

Why does one go co the Soviet 
Union and Outer Mongolia? Everyone 
knows that Outer Mongolia isn't real 
anyway. It is only a figment manufac- 
tured by those needing to threaten, 
such as, "If you don't shape up, I'm 
shipping you off to Outer Mongolia." 



Why deliberately leave the conve- 
niences of our society {I will never 
again take working plumbing and hot 
water for granted)? One reason is Dr. 
Crowe. Where else could a person find 
a leader that speaks fluent Russian, has 
taughc the history of that country for 
years, and has made eleven trips into 
this rather formidable part of the 
world? His experience and expertise 
takes the trip out of the category of 
"cour" and places it into che cacegory 
of "hands-on experience." What a 
bonus Dr. Crowe was! He had the uni- 
que talent of looking after the group 
without hovering, and of encouraging 
our own initiative and participation. 



[ h the cities of this trip! Len- 
ingrad is beautiful with its 
waterways and its lovely cast iron rail- 
ings that stand watch along these 
waterways. The city stands as a monu- 
ment to man's struggles, having ex- 
perienced the DecemberisC uprising, 
the terrorist activities of the 1880's, 
and the seige of the Second World 
War. It is also a monument to man's 
love of the beautiful as preserved and 
exemplified in the Hermitage Art 
Museum, the Kirov Theatre, and Sc. 
Issac's Cathedral. 

Baku, a lovely sun-baked area border- 
ing the Caspian Sea, 'A'as pure culture 
shock after cold, over-cast, snowy Len- 
ingrad. Suddenly we were transported 
into a Mediterranean climate and 
society; from the cool, reserved north 
to the warm relaxed south. It seemed 
strange that this belonged with the 
same country, and it was here that we 
began to grasp the size and diversity of 
the Soviet Union. We had a seven- 
course banquet, 14th-century style, 
complete with a rather strange. 
Turkish-sounding band that delighted 
in showing up periodically to play 
loudly as they stared at the ceiling and 
as we stared at them. Needless to say. 
it was wonderful then, but not quite so 
wonderful at 2 a.m. that same night 
when wc assembled at the airport for 
our night flight to Asia and the town 
of Tashkent. 

Russian ballet is spellbinding. We 
watched Swan Lake being performed in 
this central Asian city and each scene 
seemed a Degas painting come alive. 
The theatre performances we saw were 
first-rate whether they were of ballet, 
opera, or folk music. Each city has a 
children's theatre, and the arts are 
presented to the people from the time 
of their childhood. This is evident in 
the excellent attendance and attention 
at the performances. It must be added, 
however, that along with ballet, folk- 
tradition, and classics, rock is alive and 
well. It was an experience in 
schizophrenia when I awoke in the

■ rkutsk is pure Doctor Zhivago. Rus- 
■^ -^lan, wooden, unpainred houses 
with ornately carved trim and shutters 
of what can best be described as 
'Williamsburg colors'. It was to here 
that many Decemberists were sent into 
exile and, because of this, became a 
19th century cultural center. It was 
here that we quietly observed a Rus- 
sian Orthodox ceremony in a small, 
ancient church. The shadows were 
alive with old women dressed in black 
scurrying from one altar to the next. 
Some good American Protestants and 
Catholics lit candles in this quiet, dif- 
ferent place and wished for a peaceful 
world that would fit this holiness. 

A train is a train is a train, and we 
experienced pure "train-ness." For 
36-hDurs we rode through the Siberian 
countryside toward, and into 
Mongolia. The Soviet Union is massive 
in siie and much of it is forest and 
unspoiled wilderness; miles and miles 
and acres and acres of birch trees. 
Never again will I see birch trees 
without remembering the beauty of 
Russia and, most particularly, the 
Siberian countryside. 

Skirting around Lake Baikal, one of 
. the largest and certainly the deepest 
lake in the world, we entered Mongolia 
and came to Ulan Bator. It was a trip 
into National Geographic What is 
Mongolia? It is school children wearing 
white aprons and large smiles and play- 
ing the same games that our children 
play. It is music everywhere, and play- 
ing and singing together. It is Mongol 
dresses with sashes and boots, and it is 
horses and sheep, and camels, and a 
Buddhist monastery with the orange- 
robed lamas and the turning prayer 
wheels. It is the Gobi Desert that is 
the paradox of cold American Coca- 
Cola and ageless mountains of such 
rugged beauty that you feel you have 
been where time began; the-Gobi 
desert of ice so cold and so thick that 
you can walk between its floes and 
disappear into its cold whiteness before 
coming out on the other edge; the 
Gobi Desert of sand dunes and sheep 
herders on patient camels that allow 
themselves to be ridden by this 
busload of curious foreigners. Mongolia 
is wonderous and different and 
gracious, and is an adventure. It could 
never be relegated to the name "trip," 



/Mfm^ 3ck to Irkutsk and a flight to 
''M^^ Moscow that is longer than the 
flight from Helsinki to New York, 
overwhelms us. Moscow is full of 
green. A third of the city has been left 
in green, and birch trees are, once 
again, everywhere. Red Square is 
History. You stand and experience 
Russia. The Kremlin walls run along 
one side and form the backdrop for 
Lenin's tomb. The end is dominated by 
St. Basils Cathedral, a many-domed.

Department Store forms the other

seems to echo with parades and politics 
and, even at night, is filled with stroll- 
ing people who range from lovers to 
soldiers, from old women to children 
who look solemnly at these strange 
visitors to their city.

welcome! We all look the same, though 
very tired, but we are not the same. 
We have taken a wonderous trip 



together, and we have seen things and 
experienced things that will always be 
a part of us now. We listen to "our" 
music. We glory in "our" freedom. We 
indulge in "our" luxuries, but we 
remember Irene and smile with love.

Tryst with a 
Twist 

The Rev. Fletcher C. Lester, '18, 
was among many Elon alumni who 
celebrated anniversaries in June, but 
his anniversary was quite out of che 
ordinary. Lester was married on June 
17, 1984-his 90ch birthday. His bride. 
Gertrude Dawson, was 77 years young! 
As if a wedding with a combined age 
of 167 Yt^ars for the bride and groom 
were not enough, there was another 
detail that made their wedding dif- 
ferent from most. It was a surprise 
wedding. 

"No one knew," said Lester. "It was like 
running away to get married." 

"Only we were running into a 
crowd," his wife added, laughing. 

When Lester's two daughters planned 
a 90th birthday party for their father 
on that Sunday in 1984, they did not 
know that they were also planning a 
reception for his wedding. Only four 
people knew about Lester's wedding 
plans; his wife's son and daughcer-in- 
law who flew in from Atlanta, a 
reporter from The High Point Enierpmc 
and Lester's son-in-law, Paul Robinson, 
who performed the ceremony. 

Lester and Mrs. Dawson had been 
dating for over a year and their 
children knew ot and approved of their 
intentions to marry, but did not know 
they had specfic plans. 




Lester preached at the regular church 
service at First Congregational Chris- 
tian Church of Christ in High Point 
on June 17, 1984, and Robinson ended 
the service. 

After the closing hymn, "Blest Be 
the Tie That Binds," Robinson asked 
that the congregation remain seated. 
Then, recalled Mrs, Lester, "Fletcher 
came down the aisle, walked me to the 
front of the congregation, and v^'c were 
married before they knew it," 

After the wedding the new Mrs. 
Lester told The EnterpTue, "You don't 
have to be young to enjoy matriagc. If 
we only have two weeks together it 
will be marvelous."

'69 Grad Makes 
History 

Bart Shaw ranks among the leading 
young American historians, according 
to Dr. Robert Delp of the E!on Depart- 
ment of Social Science. 

Shaw recently received the Fredrick 
Jackson Turner Award presented by the 
Organization of American Historians. 
The award, the organization's most 
prestigious, was given to Shaw as the 
author of the best first .book published 
by an American historian. 

His book, The Wool Hot Boyi: 
Georgia's Populist Party, recreates the 
worid and attitudes of the Georgia 
Populist Party in the nineteenth 
century. 

"Shaw's book painstakingly recreates 
the worid of the Georgia Populists, and 
in so doing overturns long accepted 
views about the nature of the people 
who made up that important branch of 
southern populism," said the Organiza- 
tion of American Historians committee 
that selected his book for the award. 

Shaw shares the 1985 Fredrick 
Jackson Turner Award with Sean 
Wilentz, whose first book is Chants 
Democratic: New York City and the Rise 
of the American Working Class. The two 
books, "wiil change the way we look at 
nineteenth century America," said the 
committee. 

Both Shaw and Wilent; received a 
medal and a cash priie from the 
organiianon. 




Shaw, being a loyal alumnus, wrote 
to several of his history professors to 
tell them of his award. In a leaer to 
Dr. Durward Stokes, '64, he wrote, 
"You perhaps don't realise the pro- 
found influence you and your col- 
leagues have had on me. In fact, I look 
upon you all as invisible authors of the 
book." 

After graduating from Elon, Shaw 
earned his master's degree at the 
University of Wisconsin. He received 
bis Ph.D. at Emory University and is 
now a professor of history at Cedar 
Crest College in Allentown, Pa.

HONOR ROLL OF DONORS

1984-85 Annual Report 



$7.3 million PRIDE campaign^ 
new programs highlight year 



On May 3t, 1985, Elon College 
completed the most successful fund- 
raising campaign in its 96-year 
history. The PRIDE 11 Campaign. Pro- 
viding Resources for Institutional 
Development at Elon, raised $7.3 
million for improvements, en- 
dowments and operating expenses, 
substantially more than its original 
goal of $5-7 million. 

"To exceed the goal is extremely 
gratifying," said President Fred 
Young, "It is an indication that alum- 
ni, parents and friends share our vi- 
sion of overall excellence for Elon 
College, 

"It is also a tribute to fine manage- 
ment of this campaign and the hard 
work on the part of many volunteers. 
We are grateful to all who made this 
accomplishment possible," 

Dr, lames B. Powell served as 
general chairman of the campaign. 
Other members of the steering com- 
mittee included Ernest A. Koury, Sr., 
Major and Special Gifts Committee 
chairman; Royall H, Spence, )r., 
Trustee Committee chairman; Dr. J- 
Earl Danieley. Area and Special Cam- 
paigns Committee chairman: and C.A. 
Mclver, Burlington area chairman; 
Sherrill Hall, chairman of the Board 
of Trustees Development Committee; 
and David T. Rutledge, Public Rela- 
tions Advisory Committee Chairman. 

Money for a new fine arts center 
was a major goal of the PRIDE It 
campaign. Campaign pledges and 
gifts which may be used for the new 
center totaled $2,8 million, enough 
to construct the first phase of the 
building, which consists of music 
classrooms and a recital hall. 

College officials are now 
negotiating a plan that would allow 
construction of both phases of the 
center. The second phase consists of 
art and drama facilities and includes 
an auditorium, A decision on the 
construction plans and a date for 
ground-breaking are expected soon. 

A $250,000 challenge grant from 
the Kresge Foundation played a key 
role in the fine arts center fund- 
raising, Elon donors gave $975,000 in 
response to the challenge, 

PRIDE II gifts and pledges to the 
college endowment totaled over $2 
million. This amount included 
scholarships, professorships, depart- 
mental endowments and a $250,000 
addition to the Spence Library En- 
dowment, a gift from Mr. RoyatI 
Spence, Sr. and the late Mrs. Spence, 
and Mr, and Mrs. Royall Spence, )r. 
Sixty new scholarship endowments 
were established as a result of PRIDE 
II. 

Nearly $? million was raised for 
physical plant enhancements. This 
amount included gifts from Mr. and 
Mrs. Wallace Chandler, the late Reid 
Maynard and his wife, Grace Moore 
Maynard, and Mr. and Mrs, Royal 
Spence, Jr., to name Chandler, 
Maynard and Colclough Halls, 



respectively. The Bakatsias family of 
Burlington gave $50,000 to build a 
new soccer field which bears their 
name. 

Finally $1,4 million was given to 
support the college's Annual Fund 
and Athletic Scholarship Fund during 
PRIDE II, Together, these funds pro- 
vide general operatmg support for 
the total college, as well as scholar- 
ship funding for athletes. 

The other big giving news of the 
year was the increase in the percen- 
tage of alumni making gifts to the 
college. In 1984-85 that figure rose to 
38.77o, surpassing Duke, Wake Forest 
and Davidson and ranking Elon se- 
cond in the state in percentage of 
alumni participation. More details 
may be found elsewhere in this 
issue. Two other giving records were 
established in 1984-85: Annual Fund 
gifts from alumni exceeded $100,000 
for the first time and total private giv- 
ing surpassed $2 million. 



Admissions Standards Show 
Increase 

In a speech outlining Centennial 
goals to the faculty in September 
1984, President Fred Young announc- 
ed that requirements for admission to 
Elon would be gradually raised over 
the next four years. 

The first increment came in 1984, 
with a highly successful outcome, A 
slightly higher admission standard for 
entermg 1984-85 students resulted in 
a substantial increase in the number 
of students rejected. Despite that 
fact, the college has a record enroll- 
ment of 2794. 

Increases in the number of students 
applying for admission made that 
achievement possible. Since 1982 the 
number of applications received has 
risen over 40%, enabling the college 
to be more selective. 

Standards were tightened again for 
the 1985-86 year. In July, 1985 rejec- 
tions were running 70% higher than 
in |uly, 1984; however, with the in- 
creased number of applications, the 
enrollment for fall 1985 was expected 
to remain stable. 

The strengthening of admission 
standards is a part of an overall goal 
to place the college "at the top 
among the private institutions in the 
state with similar missions" by the 
Centennial. 

MBA, New Majors Added to 
Academic Program 

The enrollment of the first students 
in Elon's MBA program and the addi- 
tion of two new majors to the cur- 
riculum highlighted the 1984-85 
academic year. 

Local professionals and recent col- 
lege graduates greeted the MBA pro- 
gram enthusiastically. Thirty degree 
candidates wei^admitted to the pro- 
gram in the fall and an additional 
nine in the spring, exceeding expec- 



tations for the lirst year, MBA classes 
are offered four evening each week; 
36 semester-hours credit is required to 
earn the degree. 

The communications program at 
Elon took another step forward in 
1984 with the creation of majors in 
mass communication (radio and 
television) and journalism, A 
videotaping classroom in Mooney 
Building was converted into a full- 
fledged television production studio 
and equipment was purchased 
equivalent to that owned by most 
small television studios and many 
larger institutions. 

Communications students went im- 
mediately into production. Through- 
out the year, they and their pro- 
lessors produced a weekly half-hour 
television show for local access cable 
channels entitled "Elon in Review." 

The new journalism major is a 
modification of the previous English- 
journalism major, a strong program 
at Elon for fnany years. The addition 
of typesetting and word-processing 
capabilities is now enhancing the 
professional preparation of students 
in that field. Both new communica- 
tions majors at Elon emphasize 
strong writing skills. 

Perhaps the most exciting develop- 
ment of the academic year was the 
scheduling of Elon's first full semester 
of foreign study. 

Beginning in fall. 1985, Elon 
students will have the fall semester 
studying in Loncjon, England, all for 
the regular price of tuition, room and 
board, plus air fare. 

Students will stay at a London 
hotel, take classes taught by British 
and American professors, have access 
to University of London library 
facilities and have plenty of time for 
extra travel. The popular Winter 
Term in England will continue to 
operate as in the past, giving Elon 
students a choice of foreign study 
opportunities. 

Elon's teacher education program 
was reaccredited by the N,C State 
Department of Public Instruction dur- 
ing the past year. In preparation for 
the reaccreditation visit, the Depart- 
ment of Education conducted an ex- 
haustive self-study and made several 
changes. Among the new features: a 
full-semester of student teaching, a 
middle grades majors, sophomore 
level practicum, and a Curriculum 
Resources Center stocked with com- 
plete sets of state-adopted and sup- 
plementary texts, various teaching 
aids and a microcomputer with ap- 
propriate software. The changes keep 
Elon in the vanguard of current 
statewide efforts to ensure well- 
trained teachers. 

Writing is no longer the property 
of the English department as a result 
of the successful implementation of 
Elon's writmg-across-the-curriculum 
program in 1984-85, Following a 
kick-off workshop led by nationally 
known writing consultant Elaine 
Maimon, 33 faculty members 
representing all disciplines used 
writing assignments and activities as 
a way of teaching the subject matter 
in their field. The successful program 
has attracted the attention of other 
colleges and universities, and project 



From the President 

It is a pleasure to present the 
1984-85 Elon College Honor Roll of 
Donors. 

I encourage you to read the report 
on the year's activities that accom- 
panies the Honor Roll. The ac- 
complishments outlined in that 
report are the work of your gifts. 
Through your support of Elon Col- 
lege you are helping to fashion the 




best possible education for the young 
men and women enrolled here, one 
which prepares them for a career 
and for life. 

We are indebted to you for your 
generosity to Elon. Your commitment 
increases our sense of responsibility 
and we pledge to you our best ef- 
forts to use your gifts thoughtfully 
and wisely.

to teach the writing-across-the- 
curriculum methods. 



Religious, Cultural Life 
Programs Expand 

To stimulate student interest and at- 
tendance, all Elon cultural and in- 
tellectual activities \tere centralized 
under the coordination of Dr. 
George Troxler during 1984-85. The 
result was an outstanding year featur- 
ing over 50 programs ranging from the 
N,C, Shakespeare Festival production of 
The Merry Wives of Windsor, which 
packed Whitley Auditorium, to a 
speech by Fatal Vision author Joe 
McCinnis, which drew an overflow 
crowd of nearly 700. 

The religious life program also con- 
tinued to grow during the past year. 
In addition to the many religious 
organizations which held regular 
meeting on campus, the new 
chaplain. Rev. Richard McBride, of- 
fered bi-weekly chapel services, a 
Wednesday morning devotion for 
faculty and staff, and vespers on 
Wednesday evenings.

Six new student organizations were 
added to the list of Elon student ac- 
tivities in 1984-85. They included 
Young Democrats and Young 
Republicans clubs, a commuter stu- 
dent organization and three depart- 
mental societies. 



Physical Facility Grows to 
Keep Pace 

To accomodate the growth m other 
areas, physical plant facilities were 
added, expanded and renovated dur- 
ing the past academic year. Three 
units housing 128 students were add- 
ed to the lordan Center complex, 
bringing to 428 the number ot beds 
added at Elon in the past three years. 
Bakatsias Soccer Field was completed 
on the northern extreme of the cam- 
pus, giving the Elon soccer team a 
superior playing facility. 

Program facilities added in 
1984-85 included a new greenhouse 
on the corner of O'Kelly and 
Lebanon Avenues; a television pro- 
duction studio/classroom in Mooney; 
the Curriculum Resources Center, 
also in Mooney; and a new com- 
puter lab and additional computer 
equipment in Alamance Building. 
Moonelon Conference Center 
located near the college was pur- 
chased and renovated. Renamed The 
Lodge, that facility serves as a recrea- 
tion and conference area for faculty, 
staff and students. 

Also during the past year, the col- 
lege installed its own telephone 
system, serving all faculty and staff 
offices and over 1200 students. New 
sections of brick walkways were add- 
ed within the walled campus, and 
remodeling was done m Duke 
Building, both dining halls, Beck 
Pool, and the Special Collections 
Room of McEwen Library.

Elon Alumni 
Top Wake and 
Davidson 



For the 1984-1985 fiscal year, 38.7 
percent of all Elon alumni donated a 
record $100,000-f to the annual 
fund. 

We did it! When the final figures 
were tallied, Elon College alumni 
found themselves in the top position 
among all coed colleges and univer- 
sities in North Carolina in the 
percentage of alumni who make an 
annua! donation to their school. Not 
only did the alumni topple Davidson 
and Wake Forest in gaining the top 
spot; they also claimed 1,000 new 
alumni donors for the third year in a 
row. During those three years, alumni 
participation increased an incredible 
186 percent. Also, total donations 
to the Annual Fund in 1984-85 ex- 
ceeded the $100,000 mark for the 
first time. That dollar amount 
represented a 64 percent increase 
over three years ago. 

Elon's Director of Alumni Giving, 
Dr. Jerry R, Tolley, was elated. 
"There is one thing for certain about 
Elon alumni," said Tolley. "They love 
a challeage and when one is issued 
they respond," 

In establishing the record participa- 
tion percentage, Elon's Golden Alum- 
ni led the way as 49 percent made 
donations. This elite group includes 
all those alumni who are members of 
the Class of '35 or earlier. For the se- 
cond straight year the Class of '36 
led all classes as it recorded a par- 
ticipation ratio of 72 percent. The 
Classes of '24, '25, and '38 followed 
closely with participations percen- 
tages of 67 percent, 63 percent, and 
60 percent respectively. There were 
ten additional classes who gained 
over 50 percent participation. They 
were the Classes of '13, '14, '15, '17 
'26, '27, '29, '34, '36, and '40. In all 
there were 45 classes whose par- 
ticipation ratio was 40 percent. 

The more recent classes, although 
not claiming the higher participation 
percentages, did establish a standard 
of their own as every class from 1969 
to the present had over 100 donors. 
To see what your class's participation 
ratio is, see the Honor Roll of 
Donors. 

Parents and friends of Elon also in- 
creased their level of support in 
1984-85. In fact, 991 parents of cur- 
rently enrolled students (38,5 per- 
cent) contributed over $33,000 to 
Elon, 

Friends of the college continued 
their generous support to Elon as 
1,171 friends made contributions, an 
8 percent increase over the previous 
year. 

In reviewing the annual giving 
year, James R Elder, )r. '60, 
1984-1985 Annual Fund Chairman, 
stated, "This has indeed been a 
remarkable giving year for Elon Col- 
lege, I'm extremely proud of the 
alumni as they have set standards of 
giving, both in alumni participation 
and dollars donated. We can all be 
proud of beating both Wake Forest 
and Davidson and gaining the top 
spot in alumni participation among 
coed colleges and universities in 
North Carolina."

Zeta And Kappa Sigma Win 
In Greek Contest 



The 1985 Greater Creek First Annual 
Alumni Participation Award was 
claimed by Zeta Tau Alpha Soronty 
with a record-setting 50.3 percent of 
their former sisters making a dona- 
tion to the Elon College Annual 
Fund. Following close behind was 
the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, who 
recorded 84 percent increase in 
donors over the previous year. Their 
second-place percentage of participa- 
tion was 49.7 percent. 

The Phi Mu and Sigma Sigma 
Sigma sororities both gained a par- 
ticipation percentage of 48.6. Alpha 
Sigma Alpha sisters were fourth in 
the sorority race as 48.3 percent of 
their alumnae made gifts. Their 103 
percent participation increase over 
the previous year gave them the lead 
over all Greeks in the increased per- 
formance category. 

In the fraternity race, the Kappa 
Alpha-Kappa Psi Nu boys came in 
second with a 47,9 percent participa- 
tion ratio, edging out the Tau Kappa 
Epsilon borthers who stood at 44.3 
percent, Sigma Phi Epsilon and 
Sigma Pi recorded 40.8 percent and 
40,5 percent respectively. 

The race for the Creek Participa- 
tion Award" was much closer than an- 



ticipated. In fact a margin of only 
four donors separated Sigma Sigma 
Sigma, Phi Mu, Alpha Sigma Alpha, 
and Kappa Sigma from receiving the 
winner's trophy. 

Although not eligible for the award 
the old iota Tau Kappa Fraternity 
turned in the best performance 
overall as 55.8 percent of these 
alumni donations. For 1984-85 fiscal 
year, total Greek participation was an 
impressive 47 percent, 10 percent 
higher than the percentage for all 
alumni. 

Dr, Jerry R, Tolley, Elon's Director 
of Corporate and Annual Resources 
was most pleased with the perfor- 
mance of the Creek alumni and 
stated: "The First Annual Greater 
Greek Participation Challenge was a 
grand success. In fact, it was through 
their significant increase in participa- 
tion that Elon is claiming the number 
one position among all the coed col- 
leges and universities in North Caro- 
lina. The fraternities and sororities in- 
creased their percentages of par- 
ticipation from 31,9 percent in 
1983-1984 to 47 percent in 
1984-1985. We congratulate them on 
their outstanding record."

The Holmes Endowment Fund: 
Better Things through Chemistry 



In the late 1930's, Tommy Holmes from Snow Hill was an 
outstanding chemlsty student in the Elon College classroom of 
Dr, Ned Brannock. 

Today, G. Thomas Holmes is a retired executive of the 
Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA) and a member of the 
Elon College Board of Trustees. 

Holmes, as have so many other Elon grads, built upon the 
sound and creditable preparation he received in a traditionally 
strong program for a highly successful career as a chemical 
engineer. That solid foundation helped propel him into the top 
echelons of one of America's largest firms. 

Now, through the G, Thomas Homes and Gladys Wright 
Holmes Endowment for Chemistry with a funding of $75,000, 
that department will be better equipped than ever for preparing 
chemistry majors who plan to pursue graduate studies or who 
seek to enter the workforce. 

Income from the endowment becomes available for use for the 
first time during the 1985-86 academic year. According to terms 
of the endowment, income will be used at the discretion of the 
department to prepare pre-engineering students for admittance 
to professional engineering schools. Any funds not spent for 
those purposes will revert to the endowment principal. 

According to Dr. ). Earl Danieley, Thomas E, Powell, jr.. Pro- 
fessor, the money comes at a propitious time. 

'The cost of scientific equipment has increased very rapidly 
within the last few years," he said. "In the first place, there is 
much instrumentation considered essential in the undergraduate 
program which did not exist a few years ago. Equipment which 
has been standard in the laboratory for years now costs two to 
three times the prices of a few years ago," 

Further, Dr. Danieley continued, "College and universities are 
finding it difficult to underwrite the cost of all the needed equip- 
ment for work in the natural sciences. Elon is very fortunate to 
have (his endowment fund to supplement our other resources 
and to assist us in our efforts to provide modern, state-of-the-art 
equipment for our students." 

There are many ways Elon alumni can help their alma mater in 
the highly competitive field of education. The generosity of Tom- 
my Holmes, class of '39, and of Gladys Wright Holmes, class of 
'41, certainly enhances Elan's position for attracting quality 
students.

The Lineberger Scholarship 
Fund: An Excellent Match 

Mrs, Virginia Lineberger Rogers of Charlotte, a member of the 
class of 1932, and her husband, Hurley D. Rogers, decided in 
1983 to make a gift to Elon that would honor her parents. The 
resulting Luther A. and Georgia V. Lineberger Scholarship Fund 
at Elon is an excellent example of how an alumnus can work 
through a matching gift program to establish a fitting memorial to 
a loved one. 

The Lineberger connections with Eion are strong. Four of the 
Lineberger children attended Elon College. In addition to Mrs, 
Rogers, the others were her sisters, Mrs. Mary L. White (Mary E. 
Lineberger '31) and Mrs. Margaret E. Rogers (Margaret E. 
Lineberger '311, and a brother, L. Alexander Lineberger, Jr. '38. 
His wife, Emma Woodson '37, also attended Elon, 

As a retired official of the Exxon Corporation, Mr. Rogers 
qualified under the matching gift program of the Exxon Educa- 
tional Foundation, Today, because Mr. and Mrs. Rogers made use 
of the opportunity afforded by the foundation, the Luther A. and 
Georgia V, Lineberger Memorial Scholarship Fund is already 
established and students are receiving more substantial benefits 
than would have been possible without the Exxon participation 
in the gift. 

Many of the nation's leading corporations, convinced that sup- 
port of higher education is important, encourage employees to 
contribute to their alma maters through matching gift programs. 

These programs, in many instances, make it possible for alumni 
to establish significant memorials quickly and efficiently Through 
matching gifts, donors can increase the value of their contribu- 
tions considerably. 

Some 902 Elon alumni— nearly 10%— are eligible for participa- 
tion in matching gifts programs sponsored by their employers.

The Cannon Fou 


ndation: 


Helping To Bulk 


1 Excellence 


When he established a foundatio 


n in 1943, textile giant Charles 


Cannon could not have Itnown t 


iat his charitable institution 


would assist Elon College in beco 


ming "A Place of Infinite 


Possibilities." However, this is pre 


cisely the case. Over several 


decades the millions of dollars ge 


nerated by the college from 


private foundations have given E 


on a qualitative "edge," and the 


Cannon Foundation has been on 


? of its most steady benefactors. 


Mr, Cannon envisioned his Fou 


ndation as having broad goals 


placing principal emphasis upon 


medical care, community funds. 


higher and secondary education, 


youth agencies, and church 


support. In addition, he anticipal 


ed that the Foundation's ac- 


tivities would be confined largely 


to North Carolina. 


The Cannon Foundation, a sub 


tantial benefactor of Elon for 


many years, has met its founder's 


expectation through the awar- 


ding of scholarships and capital i 


Tiprovement grants to the in- 


stitution. Its gift of $50,000 towar 


d the construction of the fine 


arts center is the latest illustration 


of its generosity. 


Today, under the presidency of 


Mrs, Miriam C. Hayes, Mr. Can- 


non's daughter, the Foundation c 


^ntinues lo provide support to 


North Carolina institutions o( hig 


er education, Eton is proud to 


be included among these.

The Value of Careful Estate 
Planning: An Example 

By Brank ProHJtt 

Elon College graduate Archiable (Archie) F. Fleming (A.B.'40) lov- 
ed Elon and left a sizable bequest to the college when he died 
in 1979. But after noting the gift, the striking thing that comes 
from a study of his v^-ill is how carefully it was drawn and how 
thoroughly he had developed his estate plan before it was 
written. 

Archie and his wife, Mary Ruth, prudently made separate wills 
but jointly agreed on their objectives. Consequently many of the 
provisions were alike or similar in both wills, but each will was 
drafted to minimize taxes, legal fees, and administrative costs and 
to protect as much as possible against erosion of the estate. 

Archie's will was premised on the actuarial expectation that 
Mary Ruth would outlive him. Therefore, his will was written so 
as to take maximum advantage of the marital deduction and to 
instruct his Executor that necessary costs and taxes should be 
paid out of the portion of his residuary estate which was not in- 
cluded in the share qualifying for the marital deduction. Also, 
the will provided for beneficiaries to receive full benefits, with 
taxes paid by the Executor from the estate. 

After certain specific bequests were made to family members 
and friends, the will provided for the residuary estate to be con- 
veyed, in trust, to a designated bank and trust company for pur- 
poses which were spelled out in sufficient detail. Since the cou- 
ple had no children, the single most important objective was to 
ensure that Mary Ruth would have the income she needed after 
Archie's death. To accomplish this objective, the will provided 
that all of the net income from the trust should be paid to Mary 
Ruth, or applied for her benefit, during her lifetime. Also, the 
Trustee was authorized to apply as much of the principal as was 
necessary to meet her reasonable needs if, in his sole discretion, 
her income from all sources should become insufficient to take 
care of her. 

Mary Ruth died in 1984 and, in accordance with a provision in 
the will, the trust was terminated, and the estate is in the process 
of being settled. The trust principal and any accumulated income 
will eventually be distributed to designated beneficiaries, in keep- 
ing with Archie's wishes, as set forth in the will. As indicated in 
the beginning, Elon College is one of these beneficiaries and has 
already received one significant distribution from the estate. 

Other distributions will follow as the settlement process pro- 
gresses. This will eventually amount to one of the largest be- 
quests Elon has ever received. Archie Fleming was a loyal alum- 
nus who believed in the value of education, and he wanted to 
invest a large share of his estate in the futures of worthy young 
people by helping them to get a college education at Elon.

From Ohio to Elon: Support for 
the Fine Arts Center 



The support of businesses and corporations— area, state and 
national— is crucial to Elon's success. 

During the recent PRIDE il campaign, a total of 79 corpora- 
tions made major donations, helping to push the college well 
over its $5.7 million goal to a total of $7.3 million. 

The majority of these corporate gifts came from locally owned 
Alamance County corporations. Local corporations have long 
been among the college's mosl generous benefactors and have 
made much of the institution's progress possible. A significant 
number of PRIDE II corporation gifts, however, were made by 
firms operating locally but owned by a national corporation. In 
these cases, the local company, through its chief executive of- 
ficei, received approval of the gift through the national 
headquarters. 

Ametek-Lamb Electric Division of Graham, N.C, is one exam- 
pie. The divisional headquarters are in Kent, Ohio, and the plant 
in Graham has been operating for the past seven years. 

Ametek, a Fortune 500 company with sales last year of more 
than one-half billion dollars, has been listed on the New York 
Stock Exchange since 1930 and is a diversified manufacturer with 
30 plants throughout the United States. The Graham Plant 
specializes in high-tech motors used in computers and business 
machines and produces blowers for high efficiency furnaces. 

When PRIDE II volunteer C.A. Mclver '36 called on Ametek's 
local plant manager. Donald T. Cowan, Cowan indicated that he 
was familiar with Elon and its programs and was personally in- 
terested in having his company support the college. A proposal 
was presented to the Ametek Foundation, Inc., and the result 
was a $20,000 commitment to the proposed Fine Arts Center at 
Elon. 

The Ametek-Lamb Electric Division gift is one example of cor- 
porate support that has helped to make Elon a vital and pro- 
gressive college.

What does a 
scholarship 



mean J 



The following four stories are true. The 
individuals were students at Elon when 
ihey needed help. 

Student A is married to a minister, is 
36 years old and has four children. The 
family has a very modest income. The 
student previously attended a com- 
munity college and performed ex- 
cellently. When she transferred to Elon, 
she was awarded a $2,000 academic 
scholarship in conjunction with other 
aid. With this help, she was able to 
stay in school. At the end of the first 
semester she had a 3.7 grade average 
as a mathematics major. 

Student 6 comes from a family of 
modest means, also. She was awarded 
a $2,200 academtc scholarship and a 
$1,500 music scholarship. She also 
received an outside scholarship of $500 
because of her potential. At the end of 
'he fall semester she had a 3.6 grade 
point average. The scholarship aid has 
enabled her to stay in school without 
incurring loan debts, 

Studeni C's father was a United 
Church of Christ minister. The father 
died before his son could enroll at 
Elon. The mother's income is derived 
from Social Security The son received 
the discount Elon accords to children 
of UCC ministers plus a $1,500 
academic scholarship and help from 
several Navy organizations. The father 
was a Navy chaplain, The son has been 
able to stay in school without taxing 
his mother's resources and without run- 
ning up a large debt. 

Student D, an orphan, transferred to 
Elon from a community college. He 
received a football scholarship and 
other aid to help him attend Elon, 
Despite his background of deprivation, 
he has become a successful student. 
Scholarship funds enable him to con- 
tinue as a studeni at Elon where he will 
receive preparation for a life and career 
he might never have known otherwise 

These four students all have a com- 
mon goal— a college education. They 
also have a common problem— lack of 
money. 

Today's students can still find work to 
help pay their way but usually it is im- 
practical for them to try to hold down 
full time jobs. That means their money 
must come from elsewhere— perhaps a 
federal grant, but Congress is cutting in- 
to those sharpely Meanwhile, the cost 
of a college education continues to 
rise.

ELON COLLEGE STUDY ABROAD 



Page 24A 



The Magazine of Elon 



Vol. 47,No.4. 



Oct., 1985 



Elon Enrolls 
Largest and 
Brightest 
Student Body 

Elon College has begun its 96th 
academic year by enrolling the 
largest and best-prepared freshman 
class in Its history. 

Official statistics indicate that 
2929 students signed up for fall 
semester classes, the ninth con- 
secutive increase in enrollment for 
the college. Academically, this year's 
freshman class is superior to all 
previous classes. Scholastic 
Aptitude Test (SAT) scores for 
freshmen are up an average of 50 
points from two years ago, admis- 
sions officials report. 

Joanne Soliday, dean of admis- 
sions, called the SAT increase "in- 
credible." 

"Normally it takes a college 
several years to achieve even a 
small increase," said Soliday. 

Soliday attributed the success in 
part to increased interest in Elon. 
"The word is getting out what a 
great school this is," said Soliday. 
"The numer of applications we 
receive has increased 40 percent 
over the past two years. Tliis allows 
us to be more selective." 

Elon began raising admissions 
standards two years ago as a part of 
a series of goals for the college's 
Centennial Year, 1989. "We are not 
a university," said President Young 
in announcing the goals. "Neither 
is it our role to educate solely the 
academically elite. But we can and 
should aim for the top among the 
private institutions in the state with 
missions similar to ours." 

The 1985-86 Elon students hail 
from 29 states, the District of Col- 
umbia and 12 foreign countries. 
Only 46 percent of the full-time 
students are from North Carolina, 
and college officials expressed both 
satisfaction and concern over that 
figure, which is down from 58 per- 
cent five years ago. 

"The nature of the Elon student 
body is obviously changing," said 
Dr. Fred Young, "and the change 
has both positive and negative 
implications. 

"The increasing number of out-of- 
state students means that Elon is 
less provincial and that oppor- 
tunities here are more diverse." 

"On the other hand, the decrease 
in North Carolina enrollment 
means that the college is moving 
away from its traditional enrollment 
base, which involves risk. An ag- 
gressive state tuition program is any 
one of the states from which we 
recruit heavily could greatly and 



immediately reduce our enrollment." 

Young attributed the decrease 
chiefly to cost factors. 

"Within North Carolina, Elon 
has difficulty competing with the 
cost of tuition at the state-sup- 
ported universities," said Young. 
"Outside the state, however, 
students and parents consider Elon 
an excellent buy in education- 
good quality at a low cost." 

With a current tuition of $3500, 
Elon is among the lowest-priced of 
all private colleges in its recruiting 
area. The North Carolina Legis- 
lative Tuition Grant of $950 reduces 
the cost to $2550 for all North 
Carolina residents attending Elon. 
Tuition at the state-supported 
schools averages slightly less than 
$1000. 

As is traditional, twenty-five per- 
cent of Elon's 1985-86 students are 
from Virginia. Tvelve percent are 
from the Maryland-New Jersey area. 

Over one-half of the students 
chose to live on campus, creating a 
familiar housing crunch. At the 
beginning of the semester, 76 stu- 
dents had to be housed temporarily 
at a local motel. More than half of 
them have since been moved to 
campus residence halls, and space is 
expected to be available for the re- 
mainder by the end of the fall 
semester. 



97th Freshman 
Class Gets to 
Know Elon 

By Meredith Lee '86 

Car doors slammed, trunk lids 
groaned open and parents braced 
themselves as young faces sported 
smiles of nervous anticipation- 
Orientation Week for students had 
begun. 

On September I, Carole Ann 
Barnett, a freshman from Pine- 
brook, New Jersey, was feeling the 
apprehensions of most students, she 
was looking forward to school, but 
did not want to leave her family. 

"When we pulled the car around 
to unload it, my mother was telling 
me how worried she was about 
leaving me here so far away from 
home," said Barnett. "Then some 
cute soccer players came to move 
my stuff into my dorm and she 
said, 'I think you're going to like it 
here.' " 

The orientation guide the 
freshmen received defined orienta- 
tion as "finding out just where you 
are and why." During the three-day 
period the students not only learn- 
ed where to find Mooney building, 
but also where to find the resources 
within themselves to make the 



most of their college careers. 

The Sunday the students arrived 
was filled with moving, unpacking, 
meeting advisors and administrators 
and Opening Convocation. Mon- 
day brought the new freshmen 
more than most bargained for, a 
morning lecture on academics. 
After a day of smiles of welcome, 
Dr. John S. Sullivan's lecture, "Vi- 
sion and Commitment," was quite a 
shock. 

In the lecture. Dr. Sullivan told 
the students that they need to 
commit themselves to listening well 
and learning well. He asserted that 
during high school, the students 
cut class, came unprepared, did not 
participate in class, cheated or were 
aware of cheating, crammed for 
tests and ran away from their pro- 
blems. Dr. Sullivan went on to tell 
them that college is the chance to 
break their bad habits of uncom- 
mited learning and running from 
problems. 

"In my speech, I was knocking 
them down to prove my point," said 
Dr. Sullivan. "Then I picked them 
up, brushed them off and sent 
them on their way ." He said that 
he has had a positive response from 
the students about the lecture. "I 
want to give them the support they 
need to overcome the bad patterns 
they created," he said. "I want them 
to look at what they will do with 
college and what they're about." 

"I thought the speech was really 
good, because 75 percent of it was 
true." said Russell Bull, a freshman 
from Parksley, Virginia. Bull noted 
that the speech had an important 
message for every freshman at Elon. 

Tuesday's academic convocation, 
"Analysis of a Rock Video," was 
sponsored by the General Studies 
Program. It held a lighter message 
than the first academic convoca- 
tion. The purpose of the program, 
according to Dr. Bill Rich, director 
of the General Studies Program, 
was to show how something that 
the freshmen were familiar with like 
a rock video could be approached 
from different perspectives. 

The freshmen viewed a rock 
video, and then Dr. Rich and a 



panel of three faculty members led 
a discussion on the theme and 
meaning of the video. The panel 
gave three perspectives of the video, 
a sociological view, a feminist view, 
and a journalistic view, and then 
invited group discussion. "I want 
the freshmen to understand that 
general studies courses help them 
gain different perspectives of issues 
which lead to a better understan- 
ding," said Dr. Rich. 

David Atkins, director of student 
activities, planned the 1985 orienta- 
tion schedule. "1 think the orienta- 
tion program went well, from the 
students finding their dorms and 
moving in, to the two academic 
convocations." 

Student Carole Barnett added, 
"Orientation was great. Everyone 
was friendly and helpful during a 
difficult time for me." 



Twenty-two New 
Faculty Join Elon 



Elon began the 1985-86 academic 
year with 22 new full-time faculty 
members. They included Dr. Ellen 
Barney Williams, granddaughter of 
the late professor John W. Barney, 
and a new chairman for the fine 
arts department. Dr. Paul Braven- 
der. Dr. Bravender replaces Don 
Gibson, who resigned in the spring 
to become dean of music at Baylor 
University in Texas. 

Degrees of the new faculty range 
from Oxford and The University of 
Edinburgh to Purdue, Michigan 
State, and the University of 
Chicago. Three received their 
undergraduate degrees at Elon. 

"This new group is, as a whole, 
the largest, best-prepared and most 
experienced faculty hired in many 
years," said Dr. Chris White, vice 
president for academic and student 
affairs. I think Elon will be 
significantly enhanced by their 
knowledge and skills."

Letter to the Editor 



My dear Friend: 

I received the Elon Magazine 
yesterday with the article by 
Moses Crutchfield about me. I 
think he did a good job and I ap- 
preciate it very much. It's quite 
true that "I love Elon," and I'm 
always happy with its success. 

Thanks for giving the idea and 
space for my being remembered. 
And the selection of the author 
was splendid. I remember Moses 
quite well as a student, and he 
was always a warm, lovable per- 
sonality, which still exists. 

With very much appreciation, 
and thanks to all concerned, I ex- 
tend my best wishes. 

"May the good Lord bless and 
keep you, cause his face to shine 
on you, and give you perfect 
peace." 

God bless you.

Faculty Urges 
Divestment 

The Elon College faculty has pass- 
ed a resolution calling for the col- 
lege to divest all its financial 
resources from corporations doing 
business with South Africa. 

The resolution, sponsored by Dr. 
Bruce Waller and passed at the 
Oct. 4 faculty meeting, calls for the 
"complete divestment within two 
years, of all funds with those cor- 
porations with direct investments in 
South Africa..." 

In addition, the resolution states 
that the South African system of 
apartheid is opposed to the college's 
commitment to "recognition of the 
intrinsic worth of all individuals." 

The resolution also refers to 
previous recommendation from the 
national synod of the United 
Church of Christ asking all groups 
associated with the church to 
divest. This plea extends to all af- 
filiated institutions such as Elon 
College. 

The Investment Committee of 
the Board of Trustees asked the 
Elon staff in the spring to prepare a 
report on investments the college 
holds with companies who do 
business in South Africa. The 
Investment Committee's recom- 
mendation will be presented to the 
full board at its meeting on Oc- 
tober 23. 

In a recent interview with the 
Burlington Daily Times -News, Presi- 
dent Fred Young stated that it was 
appropriate for the faculty and 
trustees to consider this issue. 

"Precisely what kind of statement 
to make is the problem," Young 
said. "Do you totally disinvest; do 
you disinvest from companies that 
do business with companies doing 
business in South Africa, or do you 
do it according to the Sullivan 
Principles?" 

The Sullivan Principles are a 
widely accepted set of criteria to 
which businesses should adhere or 
risk disinvestment. 

Whatever the board decides at its 
October meeting, recent sanctions 
imposed by President Reagan and 
any future action taken by the U.S. 
government might make any action 
by the college "moot" according to. 
Dr. Young. 

College Mourns 
Brittain's Death 

By Bob Moser '85 

Elon College suffered a great loss 
this summer with the death of Dr. 
Mary Gates Brittain, an assistant 
professor of English who had been 



with the college since 1976. She 
had fought a year-long battle with 
cancer before her death at age 52, 

Brittain was a dedicated and 
learned professor, but what stood 
out in her years at Elon were her 
many other activities. Involved in a 
great number of campus organiia- 
tions, she devoted exceptional 
amounts of time and energy to 
these "interests." She served as ad- 
visor to the yearbook. Phi Psi Cli, 
for several years, was active in 
Omicron Delta Kappa, and was 
president of The Beta Omega 
chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, an 
honor society for women educators. 
Her professional interests included 
the Modern Language Association, 
the Southeastern Renaissance Con- 
ference, the English Speaking 
Union, and the Order of the 
Eastern Star. 

Even with all her commitments, 
Brittain saved much of her time for 
what she probably considered her 
main "interest," and certainly one 
of her greatest loves— the sisters of 
Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority. She 
served as advisor to the sorority for 
six years, and lovingly came to 
know the sisters as "her girls" As 
sorority president Sandra Perry said, 
"It was just like having a mom at 
school. She was more than jusc our 
advisor; she was our friend." The 
sorority has established a scholar- 
ship fund in memory of Dr. Brit- 
tain, and contributions can be sent 
to the sorority. 

Dr. Brittain was born Mary Lou 
Gates in 1933 in the small town of 
Timpson, Texas. Married at 16 to 
Eugene Brittain, who died this year, 
she still managed to beome the first 
in her family to go to college, later 
earning her Ph.D. in English from 
the University of North Carolina at 
Greensboro. 

Dr. Mary Britcain's untimely 
death was mourned by faculty, 
students, and former students alike. 
As Chaplain Richard McBride said 
in his tribute to her, "Praise be to 
God that we have seen in Mary's 
manner of living that life can be 
both gentle and good, competent 
and inspiring." 

Mary Cosby 
Speaks at Fall 
Worship Service 

Mary Cosby, a founding member of 
the Church of the Saviour in 
Washington, D.C, was the guest 
speaker at the annual college/com- 
munity fall worship service on 
October 1. 

Mrs. Cosby's message was entitled 
"Borrowing God's Eyes." Her discus- 
sion centered around Christian at- 
titudes which enable us to achieve 



a greater global understanding. The 
Reverend Richard McBride, Elon 
College chaplain, said that the 
message was in keeping with his 
goal for the year— 'to enlarge our 
perspective and gain greater 
understanding of the problems of 
the world." 

Mrs. Cosby founded the Church 
of the Saviour 40 years ago along 
with her husband, Gordon, and a 
friend, Elizabeth O'Connor. The 
mission of the church is to serve 
the homeless, infirm, elderly, im- 
migrant mothers with babies, the 
unemployed and children in 
Washington, DCs inner-city. In ad- 
dition to the church work, Mrs. 
Cosby is a lecturer, teacher and 
retreat leader. She frequently speaks 
on issues such as the relationship 
between activism in the world and 
spirituality. 

Future events at the college 
centering on this theme include a 
"Teach-In on South Africa" plan- 
ned for the spring of 1986. 



Central America 
Teach-in Raises 
Awareness 

A teach-in on the people, issues 
and conflicts in Central America 
was held on the Elon campus 
September 16-18. 

The three-day event was a joint 
effort by college chaplain Richard 
McBride and the General Studies 
program to increase public aware- 
ness of the peoples and conflicts in 
Central America. 



Presentations began with the play 
A Peasant of El Salvador on Monday 
night. Other features included a 
chapel service conducted by Ann 
Calvin Rogers-Witte, pastor of 
Community United Church of 
Christ in Raleigh. She shared her 
experiences in Central America 
during the service and in an after- 
noon slide presentation. 
* The highlight of the teach-in 
centered around the opposing view- 
points presented by two of the 
speakers, William Schofield and 
Reed Brody. 

Schofield, representing the U.S. 
State Department Latin America 
Bureau, emphasized that the war- 
fare between the Sandinista govern- 
ment of Nicaragua and the 
American-backed Contra rebels is 
not a confrontation the U.S. has 
created. 

Schofield disputed the charge 
that the Reagan administration is 
interested only in a military solu- 
tion to the strife. He claimed that 
for every U.S. dollar given Central 
Americans for military purposes, 
three dollars of aid go toward 
economic development. 

Reed Brody, former assistant at- 
torney general of New York state, 
led a four-month fact-finding mis- 
sion to Nicaragua in 1984. His 
perception of American aid was 
quite different from Schofield's 
presentation. 

Brody discovered during his stay 
in Nicaragua that the contras were 
not fighting the government or the 
army, but instead were making 
ruthless attacks on civilians. These 
same contras have been given $100 
million in direct aid from the U.S. 
in four years, according to Brody.

Walker Heads 
Annual Fund 

Zacharv T. Walker III. president of 
Oakhursc Textiles in Greensboro 
has been selected chairman of Elon 
College's 1985-86 Annual Fund 
Campaign. 

Walker's selection was announced 
bv Dr. Jerry Tolley, director of an- 
nual and corporate giving. "Zac" 
Walker has had a strong interest in 
the college since his graduation in 
1960," noted Tollev. Currently 
Walker serves as president of the 
executive committee of the Alumni 
Association and as a member of 
the Presidential Board of Advisers, 

Walker also has an impressive 
family history with Elon. His uncle 
was "Peahead" Walker, coach and 
athletic director until 1937. Walker's 
father, Zachary T. Walker. Jr.. a 
1930 graduate, was the quarterback 
during his senior year and played 
on "Peahead's" Walker's team. Both 
men have been inducted into the 
Elon Sports Hall of Fame. 




"Zac" Walker 



In a letter to Alumni, Walker 
proudly announced that Elon now 
ranks as number one in alumni 
participation among all co-ed col- 
lege and universities in North 
Carolina. In light of this record, his 
challenge to fellow alumni is "to 
lead Elon's alumni giving to an all 
time high." 

The 1985-86 campaign goal is 
$350,000. In order to meet this im- 
pressive goal, Walker urges every 
donor who has ever made a dona- 
tion in the past to make a con- 
tribution this year. In making in- 
quiries about past donations, 
Walker discovered that last year 15 
classes had over 50% participation; 
45 classes had over 40% participa- 
tion. Walker has set the 50% par- 
ticipation mark as his goal for all 
classes for 1985-86. 

In addition, special attention will 
be paid to three classes, randomly 



History Buff 
Puts a Shine 
on Old Church 



i'Y Ronald H. Han, h 

A ]9-vear-old history major at Elon 
College is leading an effort to 
restore one of the few remaining 
aniebellum churches m the 
Winston-Salem area. 

Michael Perdue, now a college 
junior, began working in 1981 to 
restore the Wentworth United 
Methodist Church to its original 
condition. The church was 
dedicated in 1859. 

It is an area of North Carolina 
peppered with large tobacco fields 
on gently rolling hills. Life is slow- 
paced in Wentworth, with a strong 
sense of community. 

Since most parishioners are older, 
Perdue is finding it necessary to look 
outside the community for support 
for his project. 

Although it is challenging, ic is 
work that he enjoys, 

"I've been interested in history all 
my life, especially church history," 
he said, "1 have roots (in the com- 
munity) going back to 1836 and a 
strong personal interest in this 
church." 

Perdue was the most likely can- 
didate to organize the renovation, 
according to the other members of 
the small congregation. So, they 







gave him the responsibility of doing 
the project. 

When the building was erected, 
slavery was stil! practiced and social 
interaction between the sexes was 
strictly regulated. These social con- 
ventions influenced the construction 
of the building. 

Originally, che slaves had to sit in 
the balcony, which could only be 
reached from an exterior door on 
the side of the church. That way 
they would never enter the 
sanctuary. 

A wooden partition extended 
from che hack wall of the church all 
the way to the front pew. Not only 
did men and women have to sit on 
separate sides of the sanctuary, they 
had to enter through separate doors, 

To learn about the history of the 
church. Perdue interviewed the older 
members and searched records in 
Charlotte and at Duke University, 
as well as the church's own records. 

Rt'prinfed with permission fwm the 
Winiton-Salon (NO Jounwl. 



selected, in a pilot project to 
challenge the giving record of the 
class of $937. That class can boast 
a remarkable 72% participation in 
the Annual Fund drive. 

The classes challenged this year 
are: 1974, Nathanial W Harrison, 
Jr.. president; 1964, Dr. K. Wayne 
Pruitt, president; and 1957, Donald 
B. Johnson, president. 

Walker hopes that these special 
efforts to increase alumni giving 
will move Elon close to its real 
dream: to be number one among 
all colleges and universities in the 
Southeast m alumni participation. 



Wooten's 
Runback: A 
Legend at Elon 



"Once in a lifetime!" A quarter of a 
century after it happened those 
four words were George Wooten's 
immediate reaction to the mention 
of a touchdown he scored for Elon 
College in a 13-12 victory against 
Catawba in 1960. But it was more 



than just a touchdown. 

Here was the scene: Catawba led 
Elon 12-7, with eight seconds to 
play in the game and had the ball 
at Elon's seven-yard line. It was 
fourth down, and the options for 
Catawba were either to run a play 
and kill all but the last couple of 
seconds or kick a field goal for a 
sure victory. 

Catawba called timeout to talk 
over the situation and decided to 
get more points with a field goal. 

At that point. Catawba's world 
ended, and the world of George 
Wooten, Elon and thousands of 
students and alumni who had 
gathered for Homecoming Day ex- 
ploded in a starbursc of ecstacy. 

Catawba's center did not make a 
good snap, the holder made an 
even worse placement and the kick 
sailed off to the right, nowhere 
near the goal posts, and didn't even 
have enough steam to go over the 
end line. 

"1 was lined up on the left side of 
the end zone, just in case— ji^st in 
case by some sliver of a chance the 
ball might be sliced to my side. We 
had another man stationed on the 
other side of the end zone for the 
same reason," says Wooten. 

The fates continued to conspire 
against Catawba— and for Elon. 



Alumni 



Forgeting that a short field goal 
could be run out of the end zone 
just like a punt, the Catawba 
players never even covered the ball. 

"I caught it about two yards from 
the back line," Wooten remembers, 
"and as I looked upfield, I couldn't 
believe that 1 had an alley about 15 
yards wide. I just took off, and no 
one even touched me until I got to 
the end zone, and one of my team- 
mates darn near killed me." 

"When we looked at the films on 
Monday, the Catawba players were . 
shown watching me like I was some 
kind of idiot, running so hard past 
them," he adds. "None of them 
even moved to get at me." 

Of course, Catawba later claimed 
that an official blew a whistle and 
they thought the play was dead, 
hence they didn't give chase. Not 
so, says Wooten. 

"There was no whistle because if 
they had heard one, then I would 
have heard one, and I wouldn't 
have run like 108 yards for 
nothing," he says. "Heck, at that 
point all of us felt the game was 
over, and all Catawba had to do 
was to run out the clock. When we 
saw them line up for the field goal, 
we didn't like it. We felt they were 
trying to rub our noses in it," 

The following year when the two 
teams played at Catawba, and 
Catawba attempted another field 
goal, Wooten lined up in the end 
zone again. 

"This time, though, they sent a 
couple of guys out to cover the 
area as soon as the ball was kick- 
ed," he says with a laugh. 

The feat is a legend at Elon, 
passed down each year, and every- 
one knows all of the details. There 
are also about a half million people, 
among the several thousand who 
actually were there, who claim to 
have witnessed that miracle. 

"My son's football coach has told 
his team about it as a good exam- 
ple of never giving up, never believ- 
ing any game is over until the final 
gun," says Wooten, who works for 
the Navy as a personnel specialist 
and now lives in Virginia Beach. 
"And he's correct. I should know."

restaurant

means 

success 



A- 



/A 





The restaurant business is 
highly competitive. It 
demands not only substantial in- 
vestment of money, time and 
energy, but also a flair for satisfying 
the whims of an all-too-fickle 
public, always on the lookout for 
the new and unusual. Two Elon 
College alumni, however, are carv- 
ing quite a niche for themselves in 
this exacting field. Donald Keith 
Hall '72 and William Rex Harrison 
'66 are both successful and in- 
novative restaurateurs. 

Keith Hall's involvement with the 
restaurant business began with a 
job as a dishwasher for Le Chateau 
in Burlington. He held this job 
while he attended Elon College, 
juggling work and studies to make 
room for football practice and his 
wife and young daughter. From a 
position as dishwasher, he rapidly 
progressed to management trainee 
in 1972, then to store manager in 
that same year, area manager in 
1973, regional manager in 1974. 
vice president of operations in 1975, 
and finally, to senior vice president 
in 1977. At that point he was the 
second in command in the Le 
Chateau organization and was not 
yet 30 years old! 

Le Chateau had also grown from 
a single restaurant in Burlington, 
N.C., to a chain of 26 restaurants 
which were sold to the food com- 
pany Green Giant in 1977 and 
then to Pillsbury less than a year 
later. Keith stayed with Le Chateau 
as their senior vice president and 
ran the franchise for Pillsbury for 
two years, building the chain from 
26 to 52 restaurants. Pillsbury, 
which also owned Steak and Ale, 
decided to convert Le Chateaus to 
Steak and Ale or sell them in- 
dividually. Keith helped oversee the 
sale of the restaurants and earned 
enough money to finance his own 
venture: T.K. Tripps. 

T.K. Tripps was Keith's first 
brainchild. With the help of 
Thomas D. Mincher, one of the 
former owners of Le Chateau, Keith 
has developed his idea from the 
original restaurant in Greensboro to 
a chain of seven restaurants in 
North Carolina. Georgia, and 
Alabama. The T.K. Tripps 
restaurants (T. from Thomoi Min- 
cher, K. from K.m\^ Hall and Tripps 
from an ad agency's list of sugges- 
tion) exhibit a sophisticated, but 
relaxed atmosphere with a combina- 
tion restaurant and lounge. Cater- 
ing to the affluent and upwardly 
mobile, T.K. Tripps offers a place to 
meet people, socialize, and enjoy a 
casual dinner. 



Current annual sales 
of the T.K. Tripps restaurants ex- 
ceed nine million dollars, an ob- 
vious sign of the public's 
appreciation. 

In addition to the T.K. Tripps, 
Keith and Mincher have started the 
Rock-Ola Cafe. They researched 
this idea by visiting in Texas, 
Nevada, and on the west coast to 
study the trends in restaurants. The 
prototype for what they hope to

develop into another rapidly expan- 
ding chain is located at the corner 
of West Market Street and Muirs 
Chape! Road in Greensboro, N.C. 
The menu is hamburgers, hot dogs, 
salads, sandwiches, and fries but it 
is definitely not a fast-food 
restaurant. The atmosphere is 
casual, 1950s style. Rock-Ola is 
family oriented, offering a fun at- 
mosphere and large quantities of 
good food for a modest price. It 
has met with Greensboro's en- 
thusiastic approval. The proud 
owners note that Rock-Ola is doing 
20 to 25 percent more business 
than they had budgeted. 

Plans are afoot to expand both of 
these operations. Raleigh, 
Charlotte. Winston-Salem, Adanta, 
Hampton (Virginia), and Orlando 
are under consideration as possible 
sites for Rock-Ola Cafes and new 
T.K. Tripps. Keith hopes that they 
will have 50 to 52 restaurants in 
operation by the I990's. He feels 
firmly that the secret to success is 
good management and inspires his 
managers by offering monthly 
bonuses based on the individual 
restaurant's profitability. In addi- 
tion, they do careful research before 
they open a restaurant and are 
reasonably certain once it is opened 
it should make a profit. 

Keith still keeps time for his fami- 
ly and football, just as he did in 
college days. He speaks with ob- 
vious pride of his daughter, a high 
school junior and cheerleader, and 
his son, an eighth grader who loves 
sports. He coaches football at 
Western Guilford High School, is 
on the Board of Directors for Youth 
Programs for Greensboro, has spon- 
sored a football camp for the 
underprivileged, and has par- 
ticipated in the alumni football 
games at Elon College. 

Rex Harrison shares Keith 
Hall's commitment to family 
and football. The former Los 
Angeles Rams and Norfolk Nep- 
tunes football player considers his 
three children his crowning achieve- 
ment. Football has taken a back 
seat in his current lifestyle although 
he says ex-football players from the 
Rams, the Redskins, and the 
Philadelphia Eagles have come to 
visit his establishment: the night 



club September's in Virginia Beach. 

Like Keith Hall, Rex has had to 
work for what he has; it was not 
handed to him on a silver platter, 
so to speak. His father died when 
he was six leaving his mother with 
the job of supporting herself and 
her son with a bookkeeping job at 
a feed company which paid forty 
dollars a week. Rex hoped to earn 
a football scholarship to a major 
university. 

His coach recommended that he 
apply to Elon. Rex worked the 
summer before college at a moving 
and storage company and did 
weight-lifting. He brought his 
weight up 45 pounds and was able 
to earn a place on the Elon College 
football team when he arrived in 
the fall. He planned to be a doctor, 
but after his marriage in his 
sophomore year, he realized that 
the cost of medical school would 
probably be prohibitive and chang- 
ed his major to history with a 
minor in physics and math. 

After leaving Elon, he was the 
72nd player chosen in the sixth 
draft of the NFL and was offered a 
contract with the Los Angeles 
Rams. Rex signed with them, 
becoming the first Elon player to 
he drafted by the NFL. He sustain- 
ed an ankle injury and coach 
George Allen let him go after a 
year. He returned to Norfolk and 
played for the Norfolk Neptunes in 
the Continental League for three 
years. Following that, he went with 
Xerox Corporation , starting as a 
sales representative in Norfolk and 
working his way up to branch 
manager for Hampton Roads. 

The dream for a restaurant and 
club like September's was born dur- 
ing his football career when he 
visited the night spots of Los 
Angeles with a group of football 
players. It has blossomed into 
September's, a sophisticated place, 
decorated in the Art Deco opulence 
of the 1920s with marble, opal, 
walnut, and brass. It caters to the 
established affluent and attracts an 
impressive guest list, including 
Mark Moseley of the Redskins and 
Gavin McLeod of the televison 
show Loveboat. The club has a 
video screen behind the bar which 
broadcasts MTV at an unobtrusive 
level. Harrision is branching out in- 
to live entertainment and various 
programs such as fashion shows, 
dance classes, and aerobics classes 
to provide interest and excitement. 

The Rose Room, the restaurant 
half of September's, boasts a com- 
puterized ordering system which 
allows the waiter or waitress to key 
the order from the dining room 
and gives the restaurant a more 
relaxed, in-control atmosphere. The 
color scheme for The Rose Room 
naturally is rose, accented by teal 
and black. Each table is covered 
with a pink linen tablecloth and 
graced with a single rose and a can- 
dle. The chef, who was previously 
the chef for Jacques Cousteau's 
Calypso, has prepared a healthy and 
tantalizing menu offering regional 
nouvelle cuisine or, as Rex Harrison 
explains it, "regional dishes in 




Rex Harrison '66 



French sauces." 

Harrison is proud of his endeavor 
and justifiably so. but at present he 
is satisfied with its uniqueness. He 
has been approached by people 
who are interested in expanding on 
his idea or making it the first of 
many, but unlike Keith Hall, Rex 
has no wish to go beyond his single 
establishment. He thinks he will 



work at this for five or ten years 
and then perhaps retire. 

Both Keith Hall and Rex Har- 
rison have created exciting places 
for eating and entertainment and 
both are doing exceedingly well in 
their field. These two Elon alumni 
have achieved success with a uni- 
que flair.

Conversation 

WITH A 
PHILOSOPHER 



In announcing that Dr. John 
Greenfelder Sullivan is the first 
recipient of the new Maude Sharpe 
Powell Professorship, President Fred 
Young said, "The primary factor in 
his selection was his effectiveness as 
a teacher. Willingly assuming the 
role of mentor, counselor and 
friend to his students, he ex- 
emplifies the ideal for a liberal arts 
institution," 

In my conversation with this pro- 
fessor of philosophy, he spoke first 
about the classroom. "1 think 
teaching is one of the dramatic 
arts." he said. "I fee! that I must 
enliven the subject matter and 
make it applicable to the students' 
lives. Teaching is like the work of 
an actor who brings a role to life, 
no matter how many times he plays 
it. He must reanimate the old, must 
do the play anew. 

"Philosophy starts at zero point." 
.._ continued. "I know what I will 
do, but 1 face it anew each course, 
each day. Probably it won't be the 
same as last time because students 
always make a difference. And I am 
learning, making shifts in my own 
emphases and ideas. There is a job 
of sorting out the flowers and the 
garbage. 

"Am 1 a better teacher as 1 grow 
older?" Sullivan repeated my ques- 
tion. "Do I make a greater impact 
on my students now than when I 
started? 1 am available to them now 
in terms of myself, of the things I 
love. I have more connection points 
now. And I think I give my 
students far more than I was given 
at their age. I give them quality 
material when I'm at my best. I 
also want to make the student less 
provincial and to deepen his or her 
responses. It is frustrating to see the 
needs and to know that you get 
the students for such a little while. 
One is always coping with failure— 
the limitations of self and students 
against the ideal." 

Serving for a decade (1972-82) as 
chairman of the Department of 
Philosophy, which offers a rich 
selection of upper level courses in 
addition to the introductory, 
Sullivan has insisted on keeping the 
required hours for the major 
low— 27 semester hours of "very 
solid courses." The purpose is to en- 
courage either a double major or a 



philosophy major and another con- 
centration. He believes that the stu- 
dent at undergraduate level should 
have a good background in the 
liberal arts. Sullivan worked with a 
project team in the summer of 1981 
which formulated the draft report 
for a revision of the general educa- 
tion requirements. Elon College has 
since adopted a curriculum require- 
ment of liberal arts courses 
throughout the student's four years. 

In the relatively small Depart- 
ment of Philosophy, enrollment 
runs about 500 students a year. 
Here the courses, divided into se- 
quences, include the introductory: 
Introduction, Lxigic and Ethics; the 
historical sequence: Greek and 
Medieval Philosophy, 20th Century, 
American, and Modern; and the 
topical group of six: Philosophy of 
Law, of Religion, of Science, 
Philosophy and Society, Eastern 
Philosophy, and Ages and Stages of 
Life. 

Dr. Bruce Waller, a colleague in 
the department, says of Dr. 
Sullivan, "John is open in his ap- 
proach to philosophical issues and 
very generous in discussion. We by 
no means agree on every question 
we discuss, but John is always fair. 
The temptation in disagreement is 
the strawman fallacy: one is temp- 
ted to cast the opposing position in 
the weakest possible form. That is 
the opposite of John's approach. He 
is always eager to frame positions 
and arguments in their strongest 
forms, whether they are his own 
views or those with which he 
disagrees. 

"Getting clearer on an issue or 
closer to the trath is much more 
important to John than winning an 
argument or upholding his original 
position. 

"John can. however, be for- 
midable in argument. His wide- 
ranging knowledge and analytic 
tenacity and thoroughness lead him 
to weak points in arguments and 
positions, and his own views are 
carefully crafted and stoutly 
defended. 

"In our teaching we may be 
something like Jack Sprat and his 
wife, licking the platter of 
philosophical pedagogy clean 
because our tastes are in such direct 
contrast. But that would not be 
quite true. John teaches several 



areas — ancient, medieval, Eastern, 
philosophy of religion — which I am 
not qualified to teach, but I can't 
think of any area that I teach 
which he could not teach. While 
we do have complementary in- 
terests, we have some in 
common— philosophy of 
psychology, moral psychology, and 
contemporary ethics." 

Waller classifies himself as a 
logical positivist, the point of view 
of the Vienna Circle, also known 
as logical empiricism which sifts out 
the metaphysical and relies on the 
logic of science. 

"Bruce and 1 blend in many 
things and disagree in some," 
Sullivan says. "I tend more toward 
religion, ethics, and psychology. My 
definition of religion is that it is a 
quest to reunite what has been 
separated. The core of religion is 
the mystic tradition, the sense of 
an ultimate source and of the kin- 
ship of all things." 

He is pleased that academic 
philosophers are now talking about 
Eastern philosophy, a subject taught 
more frequently in departments of 
religion. Some Americans are learn- 
ing more about the East and are 
practicing meditation and con- 
templation. Tliis interest has in- 
creased greatly in the last 20 years. 

"It has also become acceptable to 
be interested in the applied areas of 
philosophy," Sullivan says. "Oi late, 
I have been involved in questions 
of ethics and professional respon- 
sibility, especially in the health care 
professions. For example, I gave the 
keynote presentation, The Nurse in 
the Middle,' for the North Carolina 
Nurses Association in Greensboro. 
And I have spoken on similar 
topics to state counselors and social 
service workers in district and state 
meetings. 

"Until recently, the stress has 
been on the ethics of duty, the 
language of rules and rights," 
Sullivan explains. "In the last 
decade, interest has grown in the 
ethics of virtues — the language of 
responsibility, i.e., the appropriate 
response. When we are talking 
about the question of what we 
ought to do, we tend to move to 
the extreme cases, such as alloca- 
tion of scarce resources or of the 
fate of a defective newborn child. 



"I am less interested in the 
'lifeboat' cases and more in the way 
value-laden isues arise every day," 
Sullivan says . "For example, in 
speaking with nurses on issues 
under the rubric of ethics, I found 
that what emerged many times 
was not 'What is to be 
done?' but 'Ho' 
do we respond?' 
when clearly 




something is 
wrong. It could 
be insufficient 
options being given to the 
patient, or the drug dependence 
of a physician. Wishing to be neither 
a martyr nor a minimalist, the 
nurse is caught in the middle. If 
she speaks up. she may lose a job 
she desperately needs; if she doesn't 
she feels frustrated and guilty. Such 
a situation demands not just ethical 
solving, but organizational, 
diplomatic solving of human rela- 
tions problems." 

I asked John Sullivan about his 
association with the Traditional 
Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, 
Maryland, a connection many peo- 
ple may think a long way from an 
Elon College professorship. 

"In the last five years," Sullivan 
said, "I have been increasingly 



The Magazine of Elon 



by Mary Ellen Priestley 



October, 1985 



associated with this institute as 
visiting lecturer, as consultant, and 
Irom 1984 as a member of their 
board of directors. I went up there 
first as a visiting lecturer on 
medical ethics, invited by Bob Dug- 
gan and Dianne Connelly, whom I 
have known for years. They had 
become interested in such an in- 
stitute near Oxford, England, and 
had stayed there to study. Over the 
last decade they have developed 
their own endeavor, their own 
identity, in Maryland. They have a 
faculty of 20 and about 18 visiting 
lecturers, some from Johns Hopkins 
and from neighbormg colleges, and 
people in practice. 

"I found here a direct application 
of Eastern philosophy. It made me 
rethink all my ideas," Sullivan con- 
tinued. "In the context of doing 
consulting work with them, I took 
the beginning portion of their in- 
tensive 27-month training program. 
After my beginning course, I know 
that anyone who thinks M.D.s can 
go for a weekend course and 
learn acupuncture is 
completely ignorant 
of this ancient 
Eastern 




practice. It 
speaks to levels 
of body, mind, and 
spirit. It is an alternative 
mode of preventive medicine. In 
fact, in ancient China, physicians 
were paid only if the parient stayed 
healthy. Just as eastern philosophy 
involves the whole person, so does 
this form of wholistic health. Sir 
William Osier, the Canadian physi - 
cian and writer who came to Johns 
Hopkins, said, 'Don't tell me about 
the symptoms of the patient, but 
tell me about the patient who has 
the ■ symptoms." 

Sullivan believes that medical 
profession burn-out, not to men- 
tion the problems of litigation, calls 
for some alternatives in health care 
with emphasis upon preventive 
medicine. He thinks that the ap- 
plication of Eastern philosophy, 
which integrates body, mind and 
spirit, may be one answer. 



In announcing the new Powell 
professorship, President Young 
also said, "Dr. Sullivan's credentials 
are impeccable." Sullivan brings to 
this professorship the academic 
training and research which 
culminated in two doctorates: the 
J.C.D m Canon Law from Lateran 
University, Rome, Italy, and the 
Ph.D. in philosophy from the 
University of North Carolina, 
Chapel Hill. 

Preparing at first for the Roman 
Catholic priesthood, Sullivan won 
a Basselin Felllowship for his junior 
and senior years at Catholic 
University in Washington, DC, for 
the B.A. and the M.A. in 
Philosophy. He contmued at 
Catholic University lor the four 
years required in theology, and he 
added a second majOr in 
mathematics. In 1963 he was or- 
dained a Roman Catholic priest. 

"That year I had the chance to 
go to Rome," Sullivan recalled. 
"Pope John had died, Paul was the 
new Pope, and the Vatican Council 
was meeting. I left Washington feel- 
ing very cosmopolitan and liberal 
and arrived in Rome in August 
when the Council was in full tilt. 
To my amazement, I found unof- 
ficial Rome light years ahead of us. 
Everything was being rethought. It 
was a mind shock, but very ex- 
citing! 1 soon realized it would not 
be effective to write on church law, 
for it was then in a state of flux. 1 
decided to concentrate on the 
broader issue of interpretation of 
law." 

Sullivan completed his studies 
and his thesis, "The Relevance of 
Three Anglo-American Jurists for a 
Theory of Interpretation of Canon 
Law," privately printed in Rome in 
1966. The three jurists were H.L.A. 
Hart, Roscoe Pound, and Benjamin 
Cordoza. He returned to Rhode 
Island to become executive assistant 
to the Bishop of Providence and 
assistant chancellor for the Rhode 
Island Diocese. 

As time passed, Sulivan felt that 
in good conscience he could not 
function as a Catholic priest, for 
several hoped-for changes did not 
emerge from the Vatican Council. 
He asked for, and received, ec- 
clesiastical permission to leave the 
active ministry in 1968. 

Now he added to his education 
by taking work in group leadership 
at the National Training Laborator- 
ies Institute of Applied Behavioral 
Science in Holderness, N.H., work 
at the Anthos Institute, New York, 
and at the Princeton Gestalt 
Center, Princeton, N.J. Increasing 
his experience in management and 
in communications, Sullivan took a 
job as administrative assistant to 
the president and general manager 
of Gallagher Communications, Inc., 
New York City. 

By 1970 Sullivan was ready to 
return to his first love, 
philosophy, and on January 17 to 
marry Linda L. Votta, whom he 
had met in New York City. That 



fall he joined the faculty of Elon 
College as assistant professor of 
philosophy and director of a new 
current issues program which he 
designed for small group explora- 
tions of social topics. 

In 1972 Sullivan was named 
chairman of his department, replac- 
ing Dr. Ferris Reynolds, "a hard 
place to fill." Respected by his col- 
leagues for the content and manner 
of his suggestions and ideas, he was 
elected chairman of the Academic 
Council. For 10 years he served on 
the Curriculum Committee. In 1980 
he was promoted to full professor 
and in May was given the Daniels- 
Danieley Award for Excellence in 
Teaching. 

"I became interested in the work 
of the North Carolina Humanities 
Committee and began work with 
them as resource humanist in 1974. 
1 have continued to work with 
them to the present," Sullivan said. 
His work has entailed speaking and 
consulting in numerous projects 
sponsored throughout North 
Carolina by the NCHC. This in- 
terest has taken him out of state to 
serve on panels, to deliver papers 
and to participate in workshops. 

Sullivan served as chief consul- 
tant and played a large part in a 
project of the National Endowment 
for the Humanities which 
culminated in the adult education 
project entitled "The Measure of 
Man: Humane Values in Western 
Civilization." This public lecture 
series covered six historical periods 
with published tools for 
community-wide programs. Later in 
this project the NEH saw the need 
for an adult seminar for which 
reading materials had to be 
developed. Sullivan worked on the 
Medieval, the 18th Century, and 
the 20th Century segments, 

"This is in the field of adult 
education which I enjoy very 
much", Sullivan said. "The public is 
always invited to these programs 
which bring scholars and communi- 
ty together. The Cumberland 
County Library in Fayetteville, for 
example , has had great success 
with 'The Measure of Man' series. 
So have Durham, Charlotte, and 
others. 

"Another project I enjoyed was a 
film-lecture series in five parts en- 
titled Aspects of Love' which I gave 
at the University of North Carolina 
at Greensboro," said Sullivan. "In 
this series I was examining human 
relationships: parent-child, man- 
woman, master-disciple, colleagues 
at work. There are many kinds of 
human relations. 

"Eventually I would like to write 
a book on certain aspects of morali- 
ty. I wrote my Ph.D thesis at UNC 
on 'Kohlberg's Progress Toward 
Understanding the Moral Life,' and 
1 had planned a book based on this 
topic. Now my interests focus more 
on the ethics of the virtues, the 
relation of ethics and religion and 
questions concerning alternative 
modes of healing. 

I asked Sullivan what, if 
anything, he would like to add to 



his full life at Elon College. 

"1 remain very interested in the 
general education— liberal arts- 
program at Elon and also in adult 
continuing education. If 1 could 
now bring to this college some 
aspect of philosophical thinking" 
and its application, I would like it 
to be an emphasis upon the 
feminine, on birthing and 
nourishing, in contrast to what we 
have been doing in America for 
years. We have made the human 
being an abstraction in the pursuit 
of material success— things and 
money. Both nationally and inter- 
nationally, we have too often stress- 
ed aggression, dominance, and 
force. Of course, we have made 
great progress in many fields, but a 
'macho' stance toward other peoples 
can now bring humanity to extinc- 
tion. We need to recover non- , 
aggressive, non-arrogant ways of set- 
tling conflicts. 

"We should reinstate a balance of 
the masculine and the feminine, 
not either-or, but a balance for 
wholeness," Sullivan continued. 
"We need to recover a less in-

vision. 

"In this endeavor. Eastern 
philosophy can play a part, not 
because it is Eastern, but because it 
articulates aspects of the human 
that have been forgotten. 

"Institutions, such as colleges, can 
apply the nourishing aspects of the 
feminine in teaching, in planning, 
and in a vision of the universality 
and wholeness of life."

Elon Football 
Ranked No. 1 

By Alan Wooten '86 

Following Eion's big 33-27 win over 
Lenoir-Rhyne College Bears on 
Homecoming Weekend, the Flghtin' 
Christians garnered the number 
one ranking in the NAIA for the 
first time in nearly two years. With 
victories over Guilford and 1984 
National Champion Carson- 
Newman, in addition to their vic- 
tory over Lenoir-Rhyne, Elon is 
also sitting atop the SAC-8 
standings. 

Leading the Fightin' Christians 
on offense thus far is tailback Jonas 
Davis of Henderson, NC, with 330 
yards on 70 carries and six touch- 
downs. At quarterback, Waynes- 
boro, Va., native Mike Brodowicz 
has completed 25 of 48 attempts for 
289 yards and three touchdowns. 
His leading receiver, Eden, N.C., 
native Stanley Hairston, boasts 12 
catches for 169 yards and two 
touchdowns. In the offensive line, 
6-1, 250-pound Alphonso Morrison, 
of Hamlet, N.C., has led Eion's big 
front. 

Defensively, the Fightin' Chris- 
tians have been led by linebacker 
Russell Evans of Cheraw, S.C, with 
27 solo tackles and 15 assisted 
tackles. His cohort at linebacker. 
Jack Arnold of Albany, N.Y., has 21 
solos, II assists and one quarter- 
back sack. The defensive line has 
been led by noseguard Grady 
Williams, of Weldon, N.C., with 16 
solo tackles, four assists and two 
quarterback sacks, while the sec- 
ondary has been led by Tim and 
Mike Ferrell of Danville, Va. 

Eion's head coach Macky Garden 
has been extremely pleased with 
the team's performance thus far in 
1985 and is optimistic that Elon 
will continue its march towards 
both the SAC-8 and NAIA titles. 

SOCCER 

The Elon College soccer team also 
has gotten off to a fine start in 
1985 with a 7-1-1 record through 
nine games. The Fightin' Christ- 
ians, under Coach Steve Ballard, 
are led by three-time All-American 
Joe Nepay of Monrovia, Liberia, 
with five goals and six assists. 
Freshman Mike Wessels of Jackson- 
ville, N.C., has chipped in seven 
goals and four assists. Another 
freshman, Glenn Gess of Somer- 
dale, N.J., has six goals and four 
assists. Defensively, Elon is led by 
senior sweeper back Andy Schaefer 
of Akamonte Springs, Fla., and left 
back Ron Jandoli of Bricktown, N.J. 
The Fightin' Christians, currently 
ranked seventh in the NAIA in the' 



Southern Division poll, hope to 

capture the conference title again 

and garner the first ever District 26 

title. 

WOMEN'S VOLLEYBALL 

Under new coach Byrd Britt, 
Eion's volleyball team has struggled 
through a difficult season. The 
team currently has a 6-10 mark go- 
ing into the second half of the 1985 
season, 

GOLF 

Elon College's golf team under 
head coach Bill Morningstar cur- 
rently holds a first place and sec- 
ond place finish in their fall, 1985 
season. Elon captured the Wash- 
ington and Lee Invitational Tourna- 
ment with Chris Dockrill, a senior 
from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, 
garnering medalist honors. Elon 
finished runner-up in the James 
Madison Invitational Tournament, 
while Eion's Jimmy Merriman, a 
senior from Fieldale, Va., finished 
second in the individual race. With 
a rebuilt team. Coach Morningstar 
is extremely pleased with the show- 
ing of the 1985-86 linksters. 



Don't Miss a Play 

The Elon football games are being 
carried live over radio station 
WWMO located in Reidsville, N.C., 
as well as Eion's campus station, 
WSOE. WWMO is a 100,000-watt 
station, 24 hours a day, located at 
102-FM on your dial. Doing the 
piay-by-play for the Fightin' Chris-. 
tians are Bob Anderson and Wes 
Durham. Durham is the son of 
UNC-Chapel Hill commentator 
Woody Durham. 



Tblley Edits 
Book of Foot- 
ball Drills 

Dr. Jerry Tolley, director of annual 
and corporate giving at Elon and 
former head football coach, has 
recently compiled and published a 
book of football drills called The 
American Football Coaches Guidebook 
to Championship Football Drills . 

The book contains over 800 dri 
and drill variations which Tolley 
personally solicited from 260 foot 
ball coaches across thi 
nation. The 




Tadbai.1. Jonas Dciiti (tad.s tfit fightih 
C/instian offense. 



contributing coaches line up like a 
Who's Who of college football 
coaches: Barry Switzer, Joe Paterno, 
Gerry Faust, Pat Dye, Frank Akers, 
Danny Ford, Bo Schembechler, 
Vince Dooley, and Dick Crum, to 
mention a few. 

The book was first published in 
February 1985 and is already in its 
second printing. 

The genesis of the book, accor- 
ding to Tolley, goes back to the 
days soon after he resigned from 
Eion's head coach position after 
back-to-back NAIA national 
championships. Prentice-Hall Pub- 
lishing Company approached him 
about writing a how-to book on 
football while his name was well 
known. 

After contract discussions with 
Prentice-Hall, Tblley decided that, 
given the ready-made market for 
the book, he could publish it him- 
self more profitably, So publish it 
he did, only to find that coaches 
everywhere were waiting for such a 
book. 

Lou Holtz, former N.C. State 
coach now at Minnesota, probably 
summed up the football communi- 
ty's reaction best: 

"The AFCA has presented the 
football profession with a volume 1 
consider to be a coach's dream. ..1 
cannot imagine a coach not want- 
ing it for his professional library."

Teach-In 



Continued from page 3 

"The Central American Teach-in 
gave us a chance to raise our 
political awareness and sensitivity," 
said Chaplain McBride. "We are 
not as politically or religiously 
aware as we should be about the 
world around us." 

T) continue this awareness of our 
place in the world community, 
McBride is planning another teach- 
in during the spring of 1986. The 
focus for that event will be South 
Africa.

March 1986 



Hail to the 
Chiefs . . . 

Three of the five most recent 
presidents of the United States 
have visited Elon College in the last 
25 years, although none of the visits 
occured during their terms in 
office. 

Gerald R. Ford's February 25th 
visit was his second to Eton. He 
was the House Minority Leader in 
the United Stated Congress when 
he first visited in 1966, His speech, 
entitled "Changing Political Con- 
cepts," dealt with the increasing 
power of the federal branch of 
goverment over the legislative 
branch. Ford attacked increasing 
executive power and Supreme 
Court decisions involving reappor- 
tionment, the issue at the time. He 
declared that the Congress was fast : 
losing its partnership status because 
of the difference in rnanpower 
available to the two branches. Dur- 
ing the 6O5, the executive branch 
controlled more than five and a 
half million federal employees, 
while the legislative branch con- 
trolled only 9,000. It seems that his 
remarks were prophetic. 

By all accounts Ford impressed 
his listeners greatly, and a spirited 
discussion session with students 
followed. Ford became the head of 
federal government in 1974 upon 
the resignation of President Richard 
M. Nixon. 

Lyndon B. Johnson created quite 
a stir in 1962 when he arrived on 
the Elon grounds in a helicopter 
and spent most of the Elon College 
Founders Day on campus. Presi- 
dent. J. Earl Danieley conferred the 
honorary degree of Doctor of Laws 
upon Johnson, who later spoke to 
a crowd that was the largest ever 
to assemble at Elon up to that 
time. The speech he delivered to 
the rapt ears of faculty, students 
and friends was primarily on the 
subject of foreign affairs. Within a 
year, the Elon Founders Day guest 
would become president of the na- 
tion. 

Jimmy Carter was on the Elon 
campus early in his campaign for 
the 1976 Democratic nomination 
for president. Carter, however, did 
not come as a guest of the college. 
He delivered a speech to a small 
crowd at the annual Alamance 
County Democratic Party fund- 
raising dinner on the second floor 
of the McEwen Dining Hall, The 
Carter address did not attract a 
great deal of attention, as few peo- 
ple imagined that the little-known 
former governor of Georgia would 
become the nation's 39th president 
little more than a year later. 



Ford Speaks 
on Politics 
and Policy 

"We hold our economic destiny in 
our own hands. . If we blow it, we 
have nobody to blame but 
ourselves," said former President 
Gerald R. Ford in his remarks to 
the large and responsive crowd 
gathered in Alumni Gymnasium on 
February 25. Hosted by the Stu- 
dent Government Association and 
the Liberal Arts Forum, Ford's ad- 
dress was the mam event during 
his visit to Elon College. 

While the economy was not the 
focus of his speech. Ford's remark 
about the future of the American 
economy certainly reflected his 
belief that America still has control 
over its destiny. 

Addressing the main topic of his 
speech, entitled "The Future of the 
Republican Party and Campaign 
Spending," Ford affirmed our two 
party system as a national "bless- 
ing." "It gives better government, 
better legislation and better 
management. It keeps us healthy." 
he said. But he was also firm in 
pointing out that our presidential 
nomination and election process is 
too long and too expensive. "It 
wears the candidate out, mentally 
and physically. . .It wears out the 
electorate too," he added. Ford of- 
fered partial solutions by saying 
that there should be a law that 
campaign contributions could 
not be accepted before January of 
an electoral year. He also suggested 
chat primaries be consolidated reg- 
ionally in a period of four to six 
weeks. 

Turning to domestic issues. Ford 
declared that Washington has 
mismanaged federal fiscal affairs. 
The national debt is unquestion- 
ably a critical problem. "I deplore 
the methods employed by the 
Gramm-Rudman-HoUings law, but 
1 applaud the goal." he stated. He 
condemned the robotic-style trig- 
gers in the law, stating that Con- 
gress had abdicated its responsibili- 
ty to make judgments on indepen- 
dent issues. "Yet if we follow the 
irendline of Gramm-Rudman- 
Hollings. we can guarantee pro- 
sperity in this country," he said. 

United States-Soviet relations will 
continue to be characterized by 
tough negotiations, according to 
Ford. "Gorbachev is formidable an 
he will be around for 20 years," he 
said. Yet Ford was pleased with the 
Geneva Summit and the plans for 
another in 1986-87. "As long as we 
talk, we aren't confronting each 
other," he remarked. 




THE BIG EVENT 

Months in the making, the day 
goes off without a hitch 



From the time Gerald R. Ford step- 
ped out of his tan Buick in front of 
Holland House (No one opens the 
president's door but the man in the 
right front seat, the Secret Service 
had warned!), until he headed off 
for the Greensboro Airport follow- 
ing his speech, Elon College was in 
a state of excitement. 

Every detail of Ford's visit, spon- 
sored by the Student Government 
Association and the Liberal Arts 
Forum, had been planned to the 
minute. Approximately 65 student 
and faculty leaders were waiting in- 
side when Ford arrived at the 
home of the President and Mrs. 
Fred Young. After a brief reception 
line, the former president took a 
seat and for 45 minutes loquacious- 
ly answered questions from the 
students who crowded into the 
room around him, many sitting on 
the floor. His audience was rapt. 

Following a brief rest, it was off 
to Alamance Country Club for a 
dinner with 125 Elon trustees and 
special friends. N.C. Governor 
James G. Martin was also there to 
greet Ford and the guests. Again 
Ford spoke graciously with in- 
dividuals, often posing for pictures. 
After dinner— beef tenderloin and 
asparagus — Ford addressed the 
group briefly, reportedly praising 
Elon and the role of private colleges. 

Leaving the dinner, Ford's motor- 
cade drove to the college and across 
the grass to the south entrance of 
Mooney Building— which is now 
used only as an emergency exit but 
which had been altered and spruc- 
ed up for this special occasion. The 
entourage quickly entered the 



Mooney television studio for a 
15-minute press conference before a 
roomful of newspaper and radio 
reporters, photographers and TV 
cameramen. 

A walking trip outside to Powell 
followed, where Ford took 30 
minutes alone in President Young's 
office to go over his speech. Then 
he was whisked away from the door 
once more and driven to Alumni 
Gym. Secret Service watched unob- 
trusively from various points while 
Ford delivered a 30-minute address 
and answered questions from the 
approximately 3000 people, many 
of them students, who had come to 
hear him. Then bidding goodbye 
to President Young and Governor 
Martin, he was whisked away into 
his waiting car and the exciting 
day was over. 

Ford's historic visit to Elon was 
months in the making. SGA Presi- 
dent Shane Jones, with the support 
of President Young, invited Ford in 
the spring of 1985. after a conver- 
sation with Ford's son, Mike, who 
lives in Winston-Salem. By July the 
date was set. After that time, ac- 
cording to Jones and Dr. George 
Troxler, director of cultural affairs, 
who coordinated the visit, the list 
of things to do and decisions to be 
made multiplied at an exponential 
rate. Nevertheless, the occasion 
went off without a major hitch, or 
even a minor one that was apparent 
to any onlooker. It was a great day, 
all involved agreed, but no one was 
anxious to repeat it right away.

The Magazine of Elon 



March. 1986 



Poindexter Is 
New Business 
Veep 

Robert E. Poindexter, former assis- 
tant superintendent for business 
and finance with the Burlington 
City Schools, has been named vice 
president for administrative services 
at Elon. 

He replaces John Mitchell who in 
November 1985 announced his in- 
tention to resign after the spring 
1986 semester in order to accept a 
teaching position in the Depart- 
ment of Business Administration. 
Poindexter, who arrived at Elon on 
February 3, will work jointly with 
Mitchell for several months for a 
smooth transition. 

A native of western North 
Carolina, Poindexter holds 
undergraduate and master's degrees 
from Western Carolina University 
and has done additional graduate 
work at UNC-Chapel Hill. Prior to 
being named assistant superinten- 
dent, he had served as controller 
and finance officer, director of per- 
sonnel and a school principal for 
the Burlington City Schools. He is 
president of the North Carolina 
School of Business Officials Associ- 
ation and is generally regarded as 
one of the most capable and ex- 
perienced business officials in the 
state. 

John Mitchell joined the Elon 
staff in 1981 as the college's first 
vice president for administrative 
services. 

Mitchell holds A.B. and M.B.A. 
degrees from Dartmouth College 
and has recently taught in the 
business depanment. 

White Named 
President of 
Gardner-Webb 

Dr. M. Christopher White, vice- 
president for academic and student 
affairs at Elon, was named presi- 
dent of Gardner-Webb College on 
December 30. White, who is 42, 
has served in a variety of capacities 
at Elon since joining the faculty as 
a religion professor in 1972. He 
held the positions of chairman of 
the department of religion, associate 
dean, and dean of academic affairs 
before his appointment as vice 
president in 1983. 

White was selected for the 
Gardner-Webb post from a field of 
more than 70 candidates. A Burl- 
ington Daily Times-Neujs editorial 
appearing after the announcement 
commented: "Elon College should 
be complimented that a school of 



Gardner-Webb's caliber would look 
to Elon's administration for its pres- 
ident." Gardner-Webb is a South- 
ern Baptist-supported liberal arts 
college with an enrollment of 1800. 

"We are very proud of Dr. White 
and pleased for him, but this is a 
substantial loss," said Elon Pres- 
ident Fred Young. White came to 
Elon after receiving his Ph.D. in the 
field of Biblical Studies from Emory 
University. A popular professor, he 
was voted by students as. outstand- 
ing professor of the year for three 
consecutive years. As vice presi- 
dent, he supervised academic and 
student affairs programs, the admis- 
sions and financial planning efforts, 
and academic support services for 
the college. 

White will continue in his pre- 
sent capacity at Elon through the 
end of the academic year. He will 
assume the presidency of Gardner- 
Webb from Dr. Craven Williams on 
July 1. The search for a successor 
to Vice President White began soon 
after the announcement of his 
appointment. 

An M.Ed, 
degree at Elon? 

Is Elon considering a master's o( 
education degree? Yes, says Dr. Wes 
Brogan, chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Education and Psychology. 
According to Brogan, the educa- 
tion department, in response to 
many requests, is now designing a 



proposal for a graduate degree pro- 
gram. He cautioned, however, that 
thus far the program is ofily in the 
form of a proposal. 

Before the master's of education 
degree can become a reality, the 
proposal must be completed by the 
education department and then ap- 
proved by the Graduate Council, 
the Curriculum Committee, the 
faculty and the Board of Trustees, 
in that order. Finally, it must be 
approved by the Southern Associa- 
tion of Colleges and Schools and 
the North Carolina Department of 
Public Instruction. 

Over the years several school 
systems, including Burlington City 
and Alamance County schools, 
have inquired about a master's pro- 
gram at Elon, according to Brogan, 

"Our local school systems have 
responded enthusiastically to the 
idea. They want their supervising 
teachers to have the opportunity to 
receive additional certification," 
added Dr. Chris White. "I believe 
this would be a good thing for 
Elon. Teacher education is a tradi- 
tion here." 

The education department 
prepared an interest/needs survey 
which was distributed to superin- 
tendents and teachers in II area 
school districts. The data gathered 
confirmed the interest and support 
for such a program. 

The next step was to talk to the 
State Department of Public Instruc- 
tion for their assessment of need, 
especially since several regional 
schools already offer the degree. 



With a positive response from that 
department, Elon requested guide- 
lines for a program design. 



New Greek 

Housing 

Postponed 

The tentative plan to construct 
new Greek housing for up to six 
organizations, approved by the 
Board of Trustees at their fall 
meeting, has been postponed. Ac- 
cording to John Mitchell, vice presi- 
dent for administrative services, 
concerns over the proposed site for 
the housing construction prompted 
the college to begin seeking differ- 
ent solutions for housing Elon's 
fraternities and sororities. "The 
site," he explained, "turned out to 
be smaller than we had hoped. We 
would have had to build the houses 
15 feet apart and in a straight line 
to avoid incurring a far greater ex- 
pense than either the college or the 
houses had planned." 

Dissatisfaction over the prohibi- 
tive costs of constructing sewer and 
water lines and roads, along with 
concerns about the proposed design 
of the houses, also contributed to 
the re-evaluation of Greek housing 
plans. Mitchell said that the college 
is considering numerous alternative 
plans for housing these organiza- 
tions, and he welcomed ideas and 
suggestions.

Publications 
Win Awards 



Publications for the admissions 
department, including the 1985-86 
admissions catalogue and several 
brochures, and the 1985 Investors 
Report have been cited for top 
awards in national and regional 
competitions. 

Designer Gayle Fishel, director of 
publication production, has receiv- 
ed the top design award given by 
the Printing Industry of the 
Carolmas (PICA) for her work on 
the admissions catalogue. The 
catalogue design was designated 
"Best in Catego'-y" for educational 
publications. She had previously 
been awarded a national Printing 
and Design Award of Excellence 
presented by Potlatch Corj oration 
for the same publication. 

In a competition sponsored by 
the Council for the Advancement 
and Support of Education (CASE), 
District 111, the admissions package 
won an Award of Excellence, and a 
"search" or mass mailer won a 
Special Merit Award. Both awards 
were in the category of admissions 
and recruitment. The 1985 Invest- 
ors Report won a Special Merit 
Award in the category of 
fund-raising. 

The award winning publications 
were written by Nan Perkins, direc- 
tor of public information and pub- 
lications, and designed by Fishel. 

In the CASE competition, there 
were 204 entries from colleges and 
universities in the Southeast such 
as Georgia Tech, University of 
Virginia, Vanderbilt University and 
the Memphis College of Art. Most 
schools use professional agencies for 
their publications. 

Elon's Department of Publications 
was formed about a year ago when 
the college purchased typesetting 
equipment. Now all college publica- 
tions, except those for athletics, are 
produced in-house. The printing is 
done off campus by regional firms. 

Dry Rush 
Comes to Elon 

Rush— the word evokes good 
memories for many Elon students 
and alumni. Now, the memories 
that come from fraternity and 
sorority rush will be a little dif- 
ferent. As of this spring, both 
fraternities and sororities at Elon 
will have completely eliminated 
alcohol from their rush activities. 
"Wet" rush, with alcohol served 
at parties and other functions, has 
been outlawed for sororities since 
1979, when the national 
Panhellenic Council made dry rush 



the standard. Pat Morgan, associate 
dean of student affairs and advisor 
to the local Panhellenic Council, 
says that dry rush is "no longer a 
big issue" for Elon's four sororities. 
But dry rush has been slower com- 
ing to fraternities on campus, who 
tried it on a limited basis in the fall 
and have recently approved rules 
that will totally eliminate alcohol 
use in rush beginning this spring. 

The impetus to institute dry rush 
came largely from pressure by the 
national organizations of fraternities 
and sororities. Morgan and Atkins 
recently attended a National Inter- 
fraternity Conference meeting and 
found that dry rush is a very 
popular concept. "Fraternity leaders 
have become scared that fraternities 
were depending almost totally on 
their social aspect— and forgetting 
the concepts of brotherhood that 
they were built on." Atkins says. 

Both Atkins and Morgan point 
out that the Greeks are enforcing 
the dry rush rules themselves, with- 
out the involvement of college of- 
ficials. The Intertraternity Council 
will be especially strict on its 
members, having instituted a fine 
of $15 per member for any group 
breaking the rules. "We're backing 
dry rush by netting our own rules 
and making sure that everyone 
sticks to them," commented I.F.C. 
President Paul Purdy. 

While some Greeks are still un- 
sure about the effect dry rush will 
have, many are looking forward to 
it. Sororities are planning a pre- 
rush social this year with cheese 
and non-alcoholic wine chat they 
hope will serve as a model for a 
successful "dry party." Ed Snider, 
president of Sigma Pi, spoke for 
many Greeks when he said, "Dry 
rush should be great. It will let us 
get to know the guys and find peo- 
ple who really want to be part of 
us, not just a part of the party." 

Greek Alumni 
Council Formed 

On December 14, 1985, a group 

of alumni from each Greek 
organization at Elon met for the 
first time as the Elon College 
Greek Alumni Council. The 
G.A.C. has two representatives from 
each social fraternity and sorority 
at Elon, representing around 1400 
total alumni. The goal of the coun- 
cil is to provide support for the ac- 
tive chapters and to help strength- 
en individual alumni groups. Tim 
Moore 78, a member of Sigma Pi 
Fraternity, was elected chairman of 
the council, and Jeff Bowling '80 of 
Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity was 
elected vice-chairman. 

At the meetings of December 14 
and January 25, the council discuss-

ed topics of interest to all members 
of Greek-letter organizations, rang- 
ing from Greek housing to dry 
rush. The council also made plans 
to sponsor its first annual Greek 
Alumni Weekend, March 14-16.

Greek alumni will assemble for a 
dinner at the Lodge on Saturday at 
5:00 p.m. Greek alumni interested

KEEPS THE 

REFRIGERATOR 

WARM 



by Susan Klopman 

Chip Atwater '77 and his brother, 
Mark, owners of Royal Textile Mills 
in Yanceyville, N.C.. are manufac- 
turing perhaps the biggest, and cer- 
tainly the most famous, long 
underwear in the United States. 

It all began when Royal Textile 
Mills came up with an ideal fabric 
for long underwear. It is m.ide of 
layers of Lycra spandex, polypro- 
pylene and cotton, a construction 
which allows the fabric to stretch 
and "breathe." Marketed under the 
logo Duke Athletic Products, the 
ThermaForm long underwear is 
sold for about $35 a set. 

This fall. Royal received a very 
special order. Ray Barley, the 
Chicago Bears equipment manager, 
called for a size double XL. There 
could only be one team member 
who would wear that size. Sure 
enough, it was for 300-pound 
William "The Refrigerator" Perry. 

"Just for fun, a salesman came up 
with the phrase 'We Keep the 
Refrigerator Warm,' " Atwater said, 
and an advertising campaign was 
born. 

"We mentioned using Perry as a 
model to our advertiser (at Luquire 
George Andrews, Inc. in Charlotte), 
and he pursued the suggestion," At- 
water said. Throwing the advertis- 
ing budget out the window was the 
first big step for this small manufac- 
turer with 75 employees and $4 
million in annual sales. It was a 
tisk worth taking. "We were able to 
sign Perry to a contract to endorse 
our product," 

Both Chip and Mark personally 
flew to Chicago for the photogra- 



phic session with Perry. "We were 
there for three days and met Perry's 
wife and daughter too. Perry is a 
real nice, 'down home' fellow," At- 
water commented. "He even invited 
us to his home in Aiken, S.C., for 
a 4th of July picnic," 

The photograph that resulted 
shows Perry modeling the under- 
wear with a live lOO-pound bear 
looking on. "We went to a nearby 
animal farm to get the bear," At- 
water said. "William and the bear 
got along just fine." Thank heavens 
for that. 

The ad began to run in January 
in several trade magazines. Atwater 
said that even by mid-January, 
Royal had received attention from 
television, newspapers and publica- 
tions all over the country. Orders 
have also reflected this interest. Ten 
other National Football League 
teams have started using the under- 
wear since Perry's endorsement. 

At home in Yanceyville, Atwater 
has two football fans of his own: 
his sons, David, 15, and Josh, 12, 
who "seem to be taking things in 
stride," he said. That's pretty re- 
markable since they are the proud 
owners of pictures and footballs 
with Perry's autograph. 

For Royal Textiles, outfitting 'The 
Refrigerator' with long underwear 
has resulted in product exposure to 
more than 175 million people. As 
far as William Perry's exposure goes, 
he's had a very warm season play- 
ing in ThermaForm long 
underwear.

Former gridder makes companies 

Fit for Business 



By Bob Moser '86 



One look at Tim James 77 tells 
you he's a big man. His massive 
chest bulges, even through his con- 
servative business suit. And after 
listening to this former Elon Col- 
lege football player talk about his 
new business, you know he has 
ideas as big as he is. 

James' business is Fitness Con- 
sultants International, Inc., a 
Greensboro-based operation which 
he founded as a result of his 
lifelong interest in fitness and his 
experiences with corporate fitness, 
or "wellness," programs. Meeting a 
growing demand for employee 
fitness programs, FC.I. has grown 
rapidly m its short history and has 
ail the trappings of a successful 
organization of the future. 

The company sets up fitness 
centers for businesses, either on-site 
or in industrial parks where 
employees from several participating 
corporations can have access. F.C.I, 
uses computers to design individual 
programs for employees and to 
monitor their progress. Carefully 
planned and executed, it is a cor- 
porate fitness plan that James says 
makes it unique in the fitness 
business, "We are not in competi- 
tion with anyone," he declares. 

While he probably did not envi- 
sion turning fitness into his own 
business, James became interested 
in training and health at a young 
age. Only 190 pounds out of Smith 
High School in Greensboro, he was 
not recruited by major colleges and 
came to Elon in 1972. 

"My experience at Elon," he says, 
"was one of the greatest things that 
ever happened to me." A great deal 
of hard work and training enabled 
James to make it as a center at 
Elon, which at the time had 
developed into one of the leading 
small college football powers in the 
nation under coach Red Wilson. 

James said that he "learned to 
train" while at Elon. working at 
various local fitness centers and 
summer camps and beginning to 
teach others how to train as well. 
After graduating from Elon in 1977 
with a degree in business admini- 
stration, he proceeded to try the 
improbable: become one of the few 
small college football players to 
make it in professional football. 
And, as he has discovered many 
times in his life, hard work and 
perseverance paid off. James played 
center, guard, and long snapper for 
teams in the Canadian and Nation- 
al Football Leagues and with the 



Chicago Blitz of the United States 
Football League. 

While living in Buffalo in 1982 
and doing a stint for the NFL Bills, 
James became convinced that he 
could run a fitness program for cor- 
porations that would be better than 
anything existing at the time. He 
continued to give health and fitness 
seminars, which he had begun do- 
ing at Elon, on topics such as 
smoking cessation, alcohol 
dependency and stress management. 
He also worked at various football 
camps and helped Nautilus set up 
fitness centers in New York. At this 
time he began to feel that compan- 
ies were not getting their money's 
worth out of fitness programs. 

Around this time, James met Dr. 
J. W Cranston, who was instru- 
mental in helping to turn the idea 
for corporate fitness into a reality. 
Beginning in 1980, James worked at 
summer football camps run by 
Pittsburgh Steeler star and good 
friend Jack Lambert. Cranston was 
the medical director at the camp 
and at Kent State University. James 
and Cranston began to collaborate 
on the idea of a "total" fitness pro- 
gram which would tailor an exercise 
routine to each individual's needs, 
as well as provide a way for the 
company to check up on the pro- 
gress of employee fitness. They set 
up a totally computerized medical 
screening, which designs a fitness 
program for each person and a way 
to monitor individual advancement 
on a regular basis. 

James tried out his ideas by start- 
ing Sports Fitness Training Corpor- 
ation, Inc., in New York. With only 
$50 in a commetcial checking ac- 
count, he went door-to-door pro- 
moting the corporation and con- 
ducting his seminars. Then James 
made what would be a very pro- 
pitious decision: he returned to his 
hometown, Greensboro, lured by 
the attraction of industrial parks in 
the area. James continued to con- 
duct his research and to program 
computers for screening and 
monitoring. In addition, he hired 
fitness experts (trained exercise 
physiologists) and pulled together 
investors from other fields, like law 
and business. Carl Stewart Jr., 
former Speaker of the State House 
of Representatives, is the full-time 
executive vice president of FC.I. 
F.C.I, was incorporated in April of 
1984, but James' hard work had on- 
ly begun. 

James' extensive planning shows 



impressive results, and companies 
are taking advantage of FC.I.'s uni- 
que approach. The business is 
growing rapidly, having recently 
opened a facility at Research 
Triangle Park in Raleigh and at 
Greensboro's Airpark West. James 
says that Airpark West is his 
"flagship" operation— an example of 
what he has envisioned for his cor- 
porate wellness centers. After open- 
ing a center for Glaxo, Inc. in 
Research Triangle, FC.I. will begin 
looking to interstate expansion. 
In his centers, James strives to 
stay away from the "sweat shop" 
look and feel. The centers feature 
well-designed interior decoration, 
with exercise equipment color- 
coordinated to match the decor. 
James proudly points out the 
details— including a thick, well- 
padded aerobics floor designed to 
cut down on injuries. The centers 
are spacious, with juice and salad 
bars, whirlpools, saunas, and FCL's 
own line of equipment, which 
James hopes to market in the future. 



"I am very proud to have gone to 
Elon," he says emphatically. In addi- 
tion to praising the academic pro- 
gram, he lauds the athletic pro- 
gram, calling it "tremendoust' James 
believes that he was as well 
prepared both mentally and 
physically for professional football 
as any of his counterparts from the 
big "football factories." 

Tim Jamrs leans back for a mo- 
ment, looking around his office at 
the diagrams, plans and volumes of 
information which have turned his 
love for health and fitness into the 
successful Fitness Consulting Inter- 
national, Inc. "Elon," he says, "was 
the basis fot all of this." He stands 
up as his eyes meet a table full of 
checklists and reminders in another 
room. Perhaps, he explains, it is a 
good thing to be an expert on 
stress management when you face 
16-hour workdays trying to develop 
a business. Tim James heads for the 
table in the next room, ready to ex- 
plain some more about his very big 
plans.

Morningstar To 
Take New Job 



Bill Morningstar. Elon's head 
baskecball coach since 1979, has 
resigned that position and has ac- 
cepted the job of Director of 
Athletic Fundraising. He will retain 
his position as golf coach. 

"I've been thinking about it 
{resigning] for the past couple 
years," Morningstar said in an in- 
terview with the Burlington Daily 
Times News. "It just seemed like it 
was the right time. . ." 

Morningstar, a 1964 graduate of 
Elon, was a former guard on the 
team. He served as an assistant 
under head coach Bill Miller from 
1973 to 1979. Since becoming head 
coach, Morningstar's career record 
IS 96-100. He is a former CIAC 
Coach of the Year. 

Dr. Alan White, diret.ror of 
athletics, said that the college is 
delighted that Morningstar has 
decided to take the fundraising 
position. 

"He is an industrious, loyal and 
very capable person and has been a 
valuable asset to our athletic pro- 
gram all the years. He likes people, 
and he loves Elon and the Elon 
athletic program. We look forward 
to our continued work together," 
White said. 

Sports Outlook 

Baseball 

With graduation and professional 
baseball leaving many key positions 
to be filled in 1986, head coach 
Rick Jones looks for a semi- 
rebuilding season for the Fightin' 
Christians. 

The addition of seven junior col- 
lege transfers, three four-year 
transfers and 10 freshmen may 
cause the process to be pushed up 
quickly, however. In fact, with some 
good pitching. Jones believes his 
team may have another chance to 
reach the NAIA College World 
Series in Lewiston, Ind. 

Jones must rebuild his mound 
staff. To help with that, he points 
to junior lefty C.W. Willis. 5-0 with 
five saves, sophomore Benny Tart, 
4-1. junior Mickey Dean, 3-1, and 
red-shirt players Robby Schoonover 
and Jeff Girton. 




Action on che court with Elon's Bernard Torain (43) and Eric Blair (55). 



Sophomore catcher Jerry Russell 
returns after an outstanding 
freshman campaign. 

Heading the outfield is senior 
All-America candidate Troy Harris. 
Joining him will be JUCO All- 
America Jimmy Caldwell, who 
amassed 51 rbi's at Louisburg Col- 
lege, and transfers Andy Barrick, 
Tom Alessi and Randy Warren. 

With sophomore Kendall Carter 
and freshman David Crouse in 
reserve, this could be the finest out- 
field in Elon baseball history. The 
key to the season, however, will be 
the pitching. "If it comes through, 
we should do well," Jones said. 

Men's Tennis 

1986 will mark a change for 
men's tennis at Elon. Tom Parham, 
who coached for twenty years at

Atlantic Christian College, will be 
in his first season as mentor of the 
Fightin' Christians. Parham's career 
includes two NAIA Championships 
(1979, 1984) and three awards as 
NAIA National Coach of the Year 
in men's tennis. 

Coach Parham will not be 
without some talented players. Billy 
Mitchell returns and should be one 
of the premier performers in the 
Carolines Conference and in NAIA 
District 26. Mitchell will be com- 
plimented by All-District per- 
formers Duane Johnson and Jeff 
Hooks who have been appointed 
by Parham as co-captains for this 
season. 

Winter Sports 

Men's Basketball 

The men's basketball team under 
Coach Bill Morningstar stands 12-8 
overall, 7-3 in the Carolinas Con- 
ference, and 9-6 in the District 26 
action. 

Leading the Christians as they 
head into the final months of the 
season is senior forward Warren 
Wallace of Charlotte, N.C. The 6'4" 
sharpshooter is averaging 17. 1 
points per game and 3.8 rebounds 
while 6'5" sophomore Bernard 



Torain of Hurdle Mills, N.C, is 
averaging 11.6 points and 6.0 re- 
bounds per game. 
Women's Basketball 
In her first season as head coach of 
the Lady Christians, Coach Jackie 
Myers has struggled. Leading a 
relatively youthful team, the Chris- 
tians are 4-16 overall, 2-9 in the 
Carolinas Conference, and 2-10 in 
District 26 action. 
Wrestling 

Jim Richardson's wrestling team 
currently stands 4-6 in dual meet 
action. Despite the record, Richard- 
son is confident that the Elon grap- 
plers will be well prepared for 
District 26 and NAIA National ac- 
tion in late February.

Estate Planning; 

An Investment in Tomorrow 



By Dr. Brank Proffitt, 
Director of Deferred Giving 

What is an estate? 

The word "estate" may evoke im- 
ages of landed gentry with big 
houses and servants. Or for the less 
romantically inclined, the first 
thought may be that it pertains to 
the property and debts of a deceas- 
ed or bankrupt person. Certainly 
these meanings have been strongly 
associated with the word over the 
years. 

For our purposes, however, the 
word has a more practical and 
useful meaning. As an alumnus, 
alumna, or friend of Elon College, 
you have an estate. Your estate is 
what you own. the whole of your 
possessions, including such things 
as your house, income, savings, 
other investments, insurance, retire- 
ment benefits, personal effects, and 
the cash in your pocket. Many peo- 
ple have larger estates than they 
realize, simply because their atten- 
tion tends to be drawn to things of 
the moment and they do not keep 
an up-to-date valuation of their 
total assets. 

Exercising your property rights 

One very intangible but highly 
valuable, and even precious, asset 
which belongs to you as an estate 
owner is the legal rights which you 
have with respect to the acquisi- 
tion, management, use, and disposi' 
tion of your property. It is in rela- 
tion to this asset— this set of 
rights— that the concept of estate 
planning has meaning. Wise and 
timely planning helps to insure that 
you will exercise these rights in the 
most beneficial and personally satis- 
fying ways. 

What is estate planning? 

Many people may think of estate 
planning only as deciding how to 
dispose of property at the death of 
the estate owner. While this is one 
of the most important, if often 
delayed or neglected, steps in the 
planning process, estate planning is 
much more comprehensive in its 
meaning. It is concerned with how 
to build an estate, how to protect it 
against erosion and economic pit- 
falls, how to enlarge it, how to 
make informed decisions in the 
management and use of it, and 
how to pass it on in keeping with 
the owner's wishes and objectives. 
In this larger sense, estate planning 
is something you should do all of 
your adult life, not just when you 
make a will. 

Estate planning for young 
adults 

Young adults, who have not in- 
herited an estate or have not had 
substantial gifts of property or in- 
come from family members, may 
understandably be preoccupied with 



meeting living expenses. As some- 
one has said: "When you are in 
water up to your neck, with alli- 
gators all around you, your first 
priority is not going to he planning 
how to drain the swamp." 

Basic financial questions for such 
young adults will be how to earn a 
steady income, how to have a place 
to live, how to build up a savings 
account, and what insurance to 
buy. Probably the number one cau- 
tion for them is to keep their stan- 
dard of living within their means. 
Early in their careers they should 
have a plan for systematic saving, 
which is the beginning of an estate. 
Conservation of assets is a theme 
that pervades all estate planning. 

Planning for emergencies 

We all know about emergencies. 
Unfortunately many of us think of 
an emergency as something which 
happens to others. Try telling 
young people about the Great 
Depression! How many of the peo- 
ple you know really take to heart 
the admonition of financial advisers 
to keep at least six months of in- 
come in a readily available account 
reserved for financial emergencies? 

The truth is that emergencies do 
occur and may happen to any of 
us. Knowing this, an important 
thrust of your financial planning 
should be precautionary in nature, 
designed to protect you against, or 
lessen the effects of, emergencies 
which may confront you, such as: 

— Loss of job 

— Major illness or accident, with 
all of the financial problems 
which attend either of these 

— Total and permanent disability 

— Legal liability incurred in an ac- 
cident, in business, in the prac- 
tice of a profession, or in other 
unexpected ways. 

-Death 

Since you cannot remove the risk 
of such emergencies altogether, how 
can you protect yourself and your 
family? 

1. You can build up a cash reserve. 

2. You can insure yourself: life In- 
surance to protect your depend- 
ents; major medical insurance to 
guard against catastrophic health 
costs; disability income insurance 
to offset losses which result from 
being disabled and to allow time 
for making necessary adjustments; 
adequate automobile insurance to 
protect yourself and others; 
homeowners and other property 
insurance as needed; 

3. You can conserve your resources, 
avoid excessive debt, anticipate 
any unusual financial demands, 
such as taxes, which you have to 
meet, and thus keep yourself as 
financially strong as possible. 

4. You can be alert to. and take ad- 
vantage of, available government 
programs, state and federal. 



which are designed to protect 
against disability, illnesS, or other 
hazard, such as state workman's 
compensation. Social Security, 
veteran's benefits, and military 
service-related government 
insurance. 

Planning for retirement 

You may have years to go before 
you expect to retire, but you should 
start planning for retirement years 
ahead of the event. Otherwise you 
may come to the time of retirement 
without the satisfaction of financial 
security and the means for a reason- 
able standard of living. 

Planning for retirement is as 
much a part of estate planning as 
planning for employment during 
the working career. Retirement 
benefits and assets must be ac- 
cumulated over the working years if 
you want to be free from financial 
worries and live comfortably during 
retirement. Even if you set a 
modest standard of living for your 
retirement years, you can be sure 
that you will need more income 
than Social Security and incidental 
savings will provide. 

The surest way to provtde an ade- 
quate retirement income is through 
a well-structured pension plan. But 
you must try to make sure that 
your pension plan is sound by 
understanding how it is funded, 
when you are covered, and how the 
benefits are distributed. Another 
important question is when are 
some or all of your benefits 
"vested." To the extent that you 
have become "vested," you will not 
lose these benefits if you leave your 
present employer and take another 
joK And the ultimate question is: 
how safe is the pension plan? Will 
the expected benefits be there when 
you retire? 

You should have a retirement sav- 
ings plan in addition to Social 
Security and your employment- 
related pension plan. Systematic 
participation in company profit- 
sharing plans, individual retirement 
accounts (IRAs), tax-sheltered an- 
nuities, money market funds, and 
other savings accounts can make 
possible significant accumulations of 
retirement funds. In deciding on a 
retirement savings plan, be sure to 
take into consideration the possi- 
bility of employer contributions 
and available tax breaks. 

Other kinds of wise investments 
can increase your estate and thus 
prepare you for retirement. Invest- 
ment requires you to weigh the ex- 
pected benefits against possible 
risks. A good rule is to venture in- 
to high-risk investments only to the 
extent that you feel you can afford 
to lose the money invested. Keep in 
mind chat only successful invest- 
ments make money for you. On 
the other hand, no investor is suc- 



cessful 100 percent of the time. 
And all investments have some risk 
associated with them. You have to 
decide how much risk you are will- 
ing to incur in the light of your 
financial responsibilities, the discre- 
tionary funds you have available, 
and the information you have con- 
cerning potential investments. 

Part of your investment strategy 
should be to avoid unnecessary 
taxes. But over the long term, you 
need a balanced investment pro- 
gram which will make the bejt use 
of your discretionary funds to help 
you realize your estate planning ob- 
jective. For an increasing number of 
Elon alumni, alumnae, and other 
friends, an Elon College life income 
plan has beconrie an important part 
of their retirciment plans. 

Making use of advisers 

Wealthy persons have long made 
use of advice aimed at protecting 
and enlarging their estates. Com- 
plicated tax laws and the competi- 
tion for investment dollars have 
caused many middle-income in- 
dividuals to seek advice in tax mat- 
ters and in making major invest- 
ment decisions. 

A great amount of common sense 
needs to be exercised concerning 
when you really need advice, what 
kind of advice you need, from 
whom you will seek advice, and 
how much you should spend for it. 
Except from a family member or 
good friend, serious advice is not 
likely to be free, even though you 
may not pay a fee for the advice 
itself. When you accept it and act 
on it, you either pay for it directly 
or indirectly through a commission, 
brokerage fee, or the like. 

Do not hesitate to check out the 
reputation and qualifications of 
legal, financial, or tax advisers. You 
may be in a position to do this 
through knowledgeable acquain- 
tances or local agencies such as the 
Better Business Bureau. Satisfied 
clients or customers are always 
good sources of information. If 
necessary, inquiries can be made to 
state licensing agencies or depart- 
ments that regulate business 
practices. 

Other good ways of informing 
yourself and increasing your own 
competence in financial matters are 
reading and talking with people 
who are more experienced than 
you. Much useful information is 
published now, some of it in books, 
magazines and newspapers, much of 
it in newsletter or digest form. But 
there are times when personal ad- 
visers should be used. Seek advice 
when you have a clear need for it 
and select your advisers on the 
basis of the best information you 
can get. 

Part U, Making a Will, in the next 
issue.

From Medieval to Modern: 
History and Music Combine in 
John Marshall Carter 



Do the Bayeux Tapestry and the 
Wampus cat have anything in com- 
mon? As a matter of fact, the two 
have a mutual friend, Dr. John 
Marshall Carter, 1971 graduate of 
Elon and currently a professor of 
history at East Carolina University. 

Carter is the editor of The Bay- 
ettx Tapestry as a Social Document, 
Selected Readings. The tapestry is 
housed in Bayeux, Normandy, and 
dates back to the 1070s. It contains 
more than fifty-eight different 
scenes and has served as a unique 
source of information about life in 
medieval times. Since history of the 
Vliddle Ages is his specialty, it's 
easy to see why Carter is interested 
in this tapestry. 

The Wampus cat, on the other 
hand, is a legendary creature of the 
Dan River. "His very fictitious ex- 
istence conjures up a longing for 
the days of yesteryear," writes 
Carter. Perhaps it was this senti- 
ment which led Carter to choose 
the name Wampus Cats for his 
Eden, N.C, -based band. 

For years, Carter dreamed of 



combining his songs, his musical 
friends and the record business. 
1985 saw that dream come to pass. 
"The Ballad of Leaksville, Spray 
and Draper" is a poem written by 
Carter and published in a book of 
poetry, Wampus Cats and Dan Ri- 
ver Rimes. How it is also a 45 RPM 
record performed by the Wampus 
Cats band. 

Carter and his friend Ron Mar- 
tin had been hoping to cut a re- 
cord since 1971. "Finally we lured 
some of our musician friends from 
the sixties out of semi-retirement 
and rendezvoused with them on 
March 1, 1985," he writes. The re- 
sult was not only the creation of a 
band and a record, but also per- 
formance engagements and inter- 
national exposure in British, Ger- 
man and Latin American news- 
papers, according to Carter. 

What's ahead for Carter and the 
Wampus Cats? 1986 promises a re- 
cording date for an album of ten 
original songs by Carter and Mar- 
tin. What about a ballad on 
Bayeux, Dr. Carter?

Tim Cox: 
Triple Major 
Turned 
Leathersmith 

By Meredith Lee '86 

Put a hole punch, hammer, a 
scallop tool and tanned leather in 
the hands of Elon graduate Tim 
Cox 76 and in almost no time at 
all, he has created a belt. "From 
cow to belt," said Cox. "All it 
needs is a man." 

Cox graduated from Elon with a 
triple major in business ad- 
ministration, accounting and 
economics. They're the skills he 
employs during the day as store 
manager of Ramseur Building 
Supply, a family business. 

At night Cox operates Leather 
and Brass, Inc. from the basement 
of his home. His six-employee 
operation produces North 
Carolina hand-made leather 
products— from pocketbooks, 
cigarette pack holders and belts to 
caps, vests and women's bikinis. 
He sells his leather products at 
fairs and to wholesalers. He 
averages about 15 shows a year 
himself. He enjoys working with 
leather products. "I Just picked it 
up when I was in college," he said. 
"It's something you get into and 
keep growin' I reckon." He takes 
pride in the fact that he does all 
the leather working by hand. 
"^X'}len you get through, you can 
see what you've done," he 
said. Cox's triple major fits into 
the leather business as well. He 
has calculated production 




very systematically. "You have to 
base your price on optimum pro- 
duction. With an inch and three- 
quarters (width of leather), I've 
figured we should be able to make 
four belts per man per hour. If I 
have three people working for five 
hours, we should be able to pro- 
duce 60 inch-and three-quarter 
belts," he said. 

The talent and business skills 
make a powerful combination. At 
a show in the fall, Cox figured he 
should take about 45 dozen belts. 
He came home with only three 
dozen. Between the handsome 
leather work and the careful 
business management. Cox has 
created a successful world that he 
loves.

Scholarship from David '83 and William Massey. 

Business Scholarship Honors 
William Raymond Massey 



William H. (Bill) Massey and 
David Massey '83 have established 
a business scholarship in memory 
of their grandfather, William Ray- 
mond Massey. The scholarship 
will be awarded annually to a ris- 
ing junior who has declared 
business administration as his ma- 
jor. Preference will be given to an 
Alamance County resident. 

At Elon David Massey was a 
business major and a member of 
Epsiion Beta Epsilon, the business 
honor societ>'. "Ever since I left 
Elon, I have wanted to give some- 
thing back to the college," David 
said. "This scholarship is the most 
exciting thing I've ever done." He 
added that he hopes other people 
will remember Elon by establishing 
scholarships or making donations 
CO the Massey Scholarship "so the 
fund can keep growing in service to 
students at Elon." 



According to David, the endow- 
ment of this scholarship is in 
keeping with William Massey's in- 
terest in education, "He was a 
very generous man and often 
helped students obtain a college 
education by being their benefac- 
tor." he said. 

Massey came to Burlington in 
1928 and began City Ice Services 
and Burlington Truckers. He was 
later one of the organizers of 
Carolina Casualty Insurance Com- 
pany and owned Peoples Insurance 
Company in Burlington. He died 
in 1981. 

Bill and David Massey also 
share their grandfather's interest 
in the insurance business. They 
are currently president and vice 
president, respectively, of James L. 
Massey. Inc., a realty and in- 
surance agency in Burlington.

Elon Names 
New V'P 

Dr. Warren L. Board, provost of 
Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo, 
Michigan, has been named vice 
president for academic and student 
affairs at the college. 

Board succeeds M. Christopher 
White, who is leaving Elon to 
become president of Gardner-Webb 
College in Boiling Springs, N.C. 
Board's appointment is effective 
July I, 1986. 

"Dr. Board was our first choice 
for this extremely important posi- 
tion," said Dr. Fred Young, presi- 
dent of Elon College, in making 
the announcement. "We are for- 
tunate to attract a person of his 
qualifications, background and 
ability who has experience at an in- 
stitution as prestigious as Kalama- 
zoo College." 

Board has been provost at 
Kalamazoo since 1978 and was 
assistant provost prior to that time. 
As chief academic officer, the pro- 
vost has responsibility for the entire 
educational program of the college, 
the faculty, and all instructional 
support services and personnel. 

Under Board's leadership, finan- 
cial resources for faculty develop- 
ment at Kalamazoo were increased 
fivefold, and a number of academic 
programs were initiated or refined, 
including the school's Liberal 
Studies program. He also supervised 
the design and development of 
Kalamazoo's educational computer 
resources and coordinated the col- 
lege's unique career development 
program, which makes foreign study 




and mterships available to all 
students. 

Board received his B.A. degree 
from the University of Idaho, M.A. 
from the University of Denver, and 
Ph.D. in Higher Education Admini- 
stration from Syracuse University. 
Prior to com.ing to Kalamazoo, he 
was executive assistant to the presi- 
dent of Elmira College in Elmira, 
New York. He is a member of the 
board of directors of the Great 
Lakes Colleges Association and a 
member of the board of regents of 
Eastern Michigan University, the 
first educator from the private sec- 
tor ever appointed to the board of 
a Michigan public university. 

At Elon Board will be responsible 
for all academic and student life 
programs, as well as admissions, 
registration and the library. The 
vice president for academic and stu- 
dent affairs holds the second high- 
est administrative office and acts 
for the president in his absence. 

Board and his wife, Mary Jo, are 
natives of Boise, Idaho. Mrs. Board 
is a trust officer with First America 
Bank Corporation. They are the 
parents of three children. 



The Magazine of Elon 



May, 1986 



Yes, Allison... 
Elon Has a 
Place For You 



Elon pTesident Fred Young Teccnily received 
the following leaer. Wiih Allison's and 
her parents' permission, it is reprinted for 
all 10 enjoy. 

508 W. Hayes St. 
Ahoskie, hJ.C. 
27910 
Elorx College Office 
Burlington, N.C. 

Dear Dr. Fred Young, 

Hi'. My name is Allison 
Hargrove. The band at your school 
came to my school called Ridge- 
croft. My mom Marilyn C. 
Hargrave went to your school and 
my dad Willie E. Hargrave did to. 
I want to know about your college. 
I would like to have a nice girl 
that could write to me and tell me. 
i am JO years old. Would you 
please send me a letter back and 
tell me if it can be worked out. 
Mv parents say you have a 
beautiful college. If you decide to 
please send me her name and ad- 
dress if she lives with somebody 
else. When you send a newspaper 
to our house my parents let me 
look at it. My teacher says I am a 
good student in dividing. I would 
like to know if you would send me 
a picture of Elon College. I might 
go to college at Elon. 

Thank youl 

Yours Truly, 
Allison Hargrave 

I'm a fan of yours. 



Dear Allison, 

Thank you for your nice let- 
ter. It certainly brightened my 
day. I believe your teacher must 
say that you are a good student 
in writing too. 

I have asked a student who 
goes to Elon to write to you, 
but 1 would like to tell you some 
things about Elon as well. 

One of the nicest things about 
Elon is that it is a good size- 
not too big but not too small 
either. It is big enough that you 
can study many different sub- 
jects here and take part in all 
sorts of sports or clubs or other 
activities that you like or want 
to know more about. But Elon 
is not so big that you have to 
be afraid of getting lost, or not 
making friends or not knowing 
your teachers. At Elon your 
teacher might be your friend as 
well. 



Trustees 



Another nice thing about 
Elon is that students come here 
from many different places. Your 
friends here might be from 
another state like Virginia or 
Maryland or even Massachu- 
setts—or from another country. 
You might also get to visit 
another country to live and 
study for a while. Many Elon 
students do. 

I am glad that you think you 
might like to go to Elon. You 
sound like the kind oi student 
we like to have — someone who 
asks a lot of questions. We are 
working hard to be sure that 
Elon will be the kind of school 
you will want to attend when 
you are ready for college. People 
like your mom and dad are 
helping us do that. 

Study hard, Allison, and keep 
asking questions. Someday you 
will be giving the answers. 

Approve M.Ed., 
Tuition Increase 

The Elon College Board of Trustees 
approved the 1986-87 budget, au- 
thorized the establishment of a 
second graduate degree at Elon, 
and heard reports on the construc- 
tion and financing of the new fine 
arts center during its annual spring 
meeting, Wednesday, March 5, 1986. 

The $14 million budget approved 
by the board for the 1986-87 aca- 
demic year includes raising tuition 
to $4200. 

"We are simply having to budget 
for the quality that is inherent in 
our programs," said President Fred 
Young in commenting on the new 
tuition level. "Even with this in- 
crease Elon will remain one of the 
least expensive private institutions 
in the state." 

Revenue resulting from the in- 
crease will be used to pay for new 
programs and personnel, to increase 
salaries, and to purchase additional 
educational equipment and resour- 
ces, according to Young. "Part of 
the money will also be used to in- 
crease the financial aid available to 
those for whom the tuition will be 
a hardship," he stated. 

After hearing a presentation from 
the Educational Affairs Committee, 
the board unanimously approved 
the establishment of a master of 
education degree at Elon. 

The board also reviewed the 
status of the fine arts center con- 
struction and heard a report on the 
special campaign to raise the funds 
needed to complete financing for 



the center. As of mid-February, 
one-third of the $1.5 million needed 
had been pledged. A report from 
the Development Committee 
indicated that development income 
over the past year was up 16 per- 
cent to about $3 million. 

In other business, the board 
granted tenure to Dr. James A. 
Moncure, professor of history, and 
approved the following promotions: 

To full professor— Dr. David M. 
Crowe Jr., Dr. Russell B. Gill, Dr. 
William G. Rich and Dr. Frederic 
T Watts. 

To associate professor— Dr. Nancy 
E. Harris. Dr. Robie W. McClellan, 
Dr. Gerardo Rodriguez, and Dr. 
Bruce N. Waller. 

To assistant professor — Betty 
Greene and Susan L. Piepke. 

One new trustee was introduced 
at the meeting, Robert E. LaRose of 
Clifton, Virginia, Mr. LaRose, a 
1966 graduate of Elon, is president 
and chief executive officer of Ad- 
vanced Technology, Inc., a high 
technology consulting firm which 
he founded in 1976. The board also 
elected Paul C. Purdy, a fourth 
generation Elon student and 
member of the Class of 1986. as 
new youth trustee. 



M.Ed. To Be 
Offered in '86 

Elon's new master of education 
degree received overwhelming ap- 
proval from the Southern Associa- 
tion of Colleges and Universities 
following a committee's visit in ear- 
ly May. Courses for the degree will 
be offered for the first time in the 
fall of 1986. 

The M.Ed, will be offered in the 
areas of elementary education, mid- 
dle grades education and physical 
education, according to Dr. Wes 
Brogan. chairman of the depart- 
ment of education and psychology. 
In each area, a minimum of 30 
semester hours will be required 
from a core of required courses and 
a group of electives. The program 
will be offered through evening 
courses during the regular semester 
and in the summer. 

Professor Ken Harper of the 
education and psychology depart- 
ment has been named director of 
graduate admissions. His respon- 
sibilities will include admissions to 
the M.Ed, and M.B.A. programs, 
Basic admissions requirements for 
the M.Ed, include graduation from 
a four-year accredited college and 
teacher certification. Upon comple- 
tion of the M.Ed, course, students 
will receive a graduation certifica- 
tion from the N.C. Department of 
Public Instruction.

Powell Gift to 
Establish Master 
Artist Series 

Dr. James B. Powell, a member of the 

Board of Trustees and president of 
Roche Biomedical Laboratories in 
Burlington, has established a fund to 
bring famous artists to the campus 
each year for the next several years. 
The series, named in honor of his 
wife, will be known as the Anne 
Ellington Powell Master Artist Series. 
The series will feature performing 
uirtists of national and worl3 renown. 
A variety of activities, including a 
public performance, meeting with 
classes and informal discussions, 
will be included in the yearly series- 
President Fred Young said the 
series will greatly complement the 
new fine arts center now under 
construction and scheduled to open 
in the fall of 1987. 

"I believe that this series will be a 
source of great pride to Dr. and 
Mrs. Powell, their family members, 
and all of us at Elon College," Dr. 
Young said. 

"Commencing in 1987-88, Elon 
College will have one of the finest 
artists in the world on campus each 
year for a public presentation and 
to work with students. This gift 
will enhance the education of 
thousands of young people." 

A native of Elon College, Dr. 
Powell has served on the Elon Col- 
lege Board of Trustees since 1979. 
He received his undergraduate 
degree from Virginia Military In- 




Anne Ellington Powell 



stitute and the M.D. degree from 
Duke University Medical School. 
Dr. Powell founded Biomedical 
Laboratories, Inc., which was ac- 
quired by Hoffman-La Roche, Inc. 
in 1982. 

Mrs. Powell is the daughter of Dr. 
and Mrs. Robert Norwood Ellington 
of Burlington. She is a graduate of 
the University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill with a B.S. degree in 
business administration. She was 
employed by Proctor and Gamble 
as a sales representative prior to her 
marriage. 

Dr. Powell served as chairman of 
the Elon College PRIDE II Cam- 
paign which raised over $8 million 
for the new fine arts center, en- 
dowments, campus improvements 
and operating funds. The Anne Ell- 
ington Powell Master Artist Series 
is a part of his commitment to the 
campaign.

Shirley Chisholm Addresses 
Women's Issues in Politics 



"We need the collective talents of 
all mankind for the amelioration of 
the human condition," said Shirley 
Chisholm, sounding not only the 
keynote of her address, but also the 
theme of her life as she spoke to a 
filled auditorium on the Elon cam- 
pus March 19. 

Chisholm's itinerary included din- 
ner with students from the Black 
Cultural Society, the Liberal Arts 
Forum and the Student Union 
Board, the three groups sponsoring 
her visit. She spoke to a range of 
national problems during a press 
conference and later focused 
specifically on women in politics, 
the title of her evening address. 

Calling women the "backbone" 
of American politics, Chisholm 
lauded their long-term service to 
the nation's political parties. "They 
fixed the refreshments, gathered the 
petitions and helped raise the money 
to put men in office," she said, 
dignifying those often unnoticed, 
behind-the-scenes jobs. But women 
are hampered politically, according 
to Chisholm, because they are not 
viewed as serious political candidates 
and thus have trouble raising 
money. "Women are considered 
risky business by our political par- 
ties because when they run, the 
money doesn't come in," she said. 

In sum. women must be consi- 
dered a vital part of our national 
political scene if we are to offer a 
legacy to our children, Chisholm 



reiterated. Healing the wounds of 
poverty and unemployment, con- 
structively working for a future 
for healthy people on a healthy 
planet will take the efforts of all 
men and women. 

Chisholm, 61, served seven terms 
in Congress, representing the I2th 
Congressional District of New York. 
In 1972, she seriously campaigned 
for the Demoncratic Party nomina- 
tion for President, the first Black 
woman to seek that office. She did 
not seek re-election to Congress in 
1982, announcing instead her inten- 
tion to write, teach, lecture and 
travel "to create a new national State 
of mind that demands peace, pro- 
sperity, and equality for all Ameri- 
cans." She now holds the Purington 
Chair at Mount Hotyoke College- 



McEwen 
Service Award 
Established 

The Iris Holt McEwen Community 
Service Award has been established 
at the college by three of her 
grandchildren, Mrs. Katherine 
McCrary Johnson of Durham, 
N.C., John Alexander McCrary III 
of Baltimore, Md., and James 
McEwen McCrary of St. Petersburg, 
Florida. 

Beginning in the spring of 1987, 
the McEwen award will be 
presented annually to a student 
"whose selfless service to the college 
and the wider community most 
nearly exemplifies the compassionate 
public spirit and numerous 
humanitarian activities" of Mrs. 
McEwen. The recipient of the 
award will be presented with a 
commemorative medallion as well as 
a cash award to be applied equally 
to the student's tuition and tees 
and a community service organiza- 
tion of his or her choosing. 

"Iris Holt McEwen had an ex- 
traordinary impact on those around 



her and on Elon College, and this 
award is a fitting tribute to her 
memory," said Dr. Fred Young, 
president of the college, in an- 
nouncing the creation of the award. 
"We are grateful to her grand- 
children for continuing her deep 
commitment to Elon and becoming 
the third generation in the McEwen 
family to support the college." 

Iris Holt McEwen was a mem- 
ber of the Elon Board of Trustees 
from 1948 until her death in 1984. 
She and her husband, James H. 
McEwen, also a former trustee of 
the college, were among the col- 
lege's most loyal benefactors. The 
James H. McEwen Memorial Din- 
ing Hall and the Iris Holt McEwen 
Library are both named in recogni- 
tion of the family's generous dona- 
tions. In 1970 Mrs. McEwen was 
awarded an honorary doctoral 
degree. 

Mrs. McEwen had a long career 
of community service. A trustee 
and former president of the Elon 
Home for Children, she also served 
for many years as chairman of the 
Board of Public Welfare of Ala- 
mance County and was vice presi- 
dent of the local Council of Social 



Agencies. Mrs. McEwen was a 
member of the First Christian 
United Church of Christ and 
founder of the Iris McEwen Sunday 
School Class. She also served on 
church boards and committees at 
the conference and convention level. 
The three donors of the award 



are the children of John and Iris 
McEwen McCrary of Burlington. 
Mrs. McCrary is the daughter of 
Iris Holt and James H. McEwen. 
The donors' uncle, James H. 
McEwen Jr. of New York Cicy, is 
also a trustee of the college. 




Alex McCrary, Katherine McCrary Johnson and James McCrary stand by par- 
trait of their grandmother Iris Holt McEwen.

humor." She has had to use all of 
these assets to become North 
Carolina's teacher of the year. 
Oliver is not the first Elon 
graduate to win this prestigious 
honor. Linda Lee '65, who was also 
with the Burlington City Schools, 
was named North Carolina Teacher 
of the Year for the 1980-81 year. 




Thespians present 



"Try to remember. . .when life was 
slow and oh, so mellow. . ." Life was 
anything but slow and mellow for 
three nights in April when Elon's 
fine arts department presented The 
fanasiicks. 

With lots of talent and energy, 
Roger Stanley and Donna Euliss, 
pictured above, took the stage as 
the impressionable young lovers.

at UNCO, directed the play. 
Musical direction was by Elon stu- 
dent Kevin Long. 



Rich Named 
Associate Dean 

Dr. William G. Rich has been 
named associate dean of academic 
affairs. He began his duties in 
March when the appointment was 
made. 

Rich will work directly with Dr. 
Gerald Francis, dean of academic 
affairs. The two will share the 
responsibilites assigned to the area 
of academic affairs. 

Describing his new duties. Rich 
commented that primarily the 
associate dean's position is a "peo- 
ple job." "1 hope to maximize the 
strengths of a large number of peo- 
ple and direct those energies to 
meet students' needs," he said.

Wake Forest University, a B.D. 
degree from Southeastern Baptist 
Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. 
in religion from Emory University. 



Phonathon 
Exceeds Goal 

The seventh annual Phonathon, 
held February 10-March 6, exceeded 
its goal of $150,000. A total of 
$173,031 was pledged to the Annual 
Fund. Matching gift donations will 
add another $18,000 to that figure. 

Dr. jerry ToUey, director of the 
Phonathon, and Frances T Stanley, 
coordinator of alumni giving, 
reported that the college is very 
pleased with the results. Alumni, 
friends and parents of current and 
former students were among the 
15,000 people telephoned. "There 
were more pledges than ever this 
year," Tolley noted. "Most im- 
pressive was the number of new 
donors and the increased amounts 
from previous donors." 

Many fraternities, sororities and 
other campus service organizations 
offered their support by providing 
the 120 student callers. 

Pledges to the Annual Fund help 
to keep tuition low by providing for 
college operating expenses. Elon's 
generous alumni support has enabl- 
ed the college to achieve the num- 
ber one ranking in alumni partici- 
pation among all co-ed colleges and 
universities in North Carolina. Elon 
alumni are also ranked number 16 
in the Southeast, a ranking which 
the college is challenging this year. 
"The goal is to be in the top ten in 
the Southeast," Tolley said, "And it 
looks like we will be, if the Phona- 
thon pledges come in as promised." 

Faculty Approves 
New Major 

The Elon faculty recently approved 
a new four-year medical technology 
major. The new major is being of- 
fered in response to many student 
requests, according to Dr. Chris 
White, vice president of academic 
and student affairs, Elon has of- 
fered a two-year medical laboratory 
technology program for some time. 

In the new four-year program, 
which will begin in the fall of 1986, 
students will complete the first 
three years of work on the Elon 
campus. The fourth year will be 
spent at Moses Cone Hospital in 
Greensboro under a cooperative 
agreement between Elon College 
and the hospital. The degree, 
however, will be granted by Elon. 

Elon also offers a B.S. degree in 
cytotechnology. The cytotechnology 
program has the same structure as 
the new medical technology pro- 
gram. Three years are spent on the 
Elon campus concentrating on the 
biological sciences and basic chem- 
istry. The fourth year is a 12-month 
clinical internship provided through 
a cooperative agreement between 
Elon and Roche Biomedical Labs, Inc.

Bob Burton 



New Basketball 
Coach Named 

Bob Burton, former assistant coach 
and head recruiter for the Universi- 
ty of Tennessee, has been named 
Elon's new men's head basketball 
coach. 

Burton replaces Bill Morningstar 
who guided the Christians to a

him a vast knowledge of the game. 
He works hard in recruiting the 
best available talent and we feel he 
will be a valuable asset to our pro- 
gram."

head coach Don DeVoe for the past 
eight years. He also worked with 
DeVoe as his assistant at the 
University of Wyoming for two 
years before going to Tennessee. In

arts degree from Emory and Henry 
College and his master's degree 
from Virginia Polytechnic Institute. 

Burton and his wife, Susan, have 
one son, Ryan, age seven.

Elon Lacrosse — 

Nine Years o{ Fun and Winning 



Coach George Taylor discusses strategy with two club members. 



By Bob Moser '86 

"You have to be a little crazy, in 
a good way, to do it," Dr. George 
Taylor says of lacrosse. Taylor 
should know. He has served as 
advisor to Elon's Lacrosse Club 
since 1980. 

The history of Elon lacrosse has 
been almost as hectic, crazy, and 
fast-paced as the sport itself, with a 
large measure of hard work and 
dedication mixed in. 

Most Elon students had probably 
never heard of the sport when a 
group of freshmen from Charlot- 
tesville entered the college in 
1974 and decided that they wanted 
to continue competing in their 
favorite high school sport. In 1976, 
Tim Moore '78 and Bernard "Bun- 
ny" Carr '78 decided to take action: 
they requested, and were granted, 
$500 by the Student Senate to form 
a lacrosse club 

$500, however, was not the sum 
of money needed to equip a new 
team and pay for travel costs. So 
Moore, Carr and a few others went 
to work, using the hall phone in 
Smith Dormitory to schedule games 
and inventing ways of obtaining 
rhe expensive equipment required 
for the club. The college donated 
some lacrosse equipment it had ac- 
quired from a bankrupt school in 
Virginia; parents, friends and 
lacrosse coaches at other colleges 
pitched in. The first game nets for 
the team had to be "borrowed" on 
a dark night from the Duke Univer- 
sity field. Moore recalls. But. mir- 
aculously, the club was ready to 
compete in the spring of 1977 and 
won three games. 

Though still without college 
financial support, the team is on 
much more solid ground today. 
Home games are well-attended, and 
interest in the sport has brought 
the number of players up to around 
35 each year. The college has con- 
sidered making lacrosse an officially 
funded sport, but for now the club 
"stays afloat" with $25-per-player 
dues, along with student govern- 
ment and parental support. The 
club supplemented an excellent 7-4 
season last year with a strong 
showing again this spring, led by 
senior standouts such as Ken 
Markowsky, Mike Storck, Harry 
Watson and Pete Carlson. Taylor 
and his players believe that lacrosse 
at Elon could be a success on the 
intercollegiate level. 

"The sport has grown tremen- 
dously in the state," Taylor says— 
and the numbers back him up. 
There are currently five high school 
teams, 12 college club teams, and 
five intercollegiate teams in North 
Carolina. The University of North 



Carolina team is one of the nation's 
best, Peter Farrell, a senior on 
Elon's club, believes that Elon is 
ready for intercollegiate lacrosse, 
"Lacrosse has already built up an 
impressive following here," he says, 
"and it can only grow. Elon attracts 
a lot of students from areas in the 
North where lacrosse is popular— 
and with a team we would 'attract 
even more." 

The Elon Reptiles, as the team 
named itself, have had their ups 
and downs since the club was form- 
ed. The club probably had its best 
year in 1978, when a team that 
featured high school All-Americans 
Paul and "Skins" Jamme went 10-3 
with one very big victory. The 
club's founding members londly 
remember when they upset Georgia 
Tech at Grant Field in Atlanta 
before a large crowd in the stands 
and a local television audience. 

Though victories like that have 
been scarce, Moore says that he 
and Carr are extremely proud of 
what they started. "We are very 
satisfied that something so impor- 
tant to us is still important to the 
players." Taylor, the advisor/coach, 
credits alumni like Scott Mont- 
gomery. Steve Burke, Ricky 
Crissman, jay Knight, Chris 
McCaig, Don Fisher, Rob Haley 
and Steve Coor with keeping the 
team going through the years. He 
also believes that the team has 
become more competitive and 
dedicated to winning; "These guys 
are more serious— they really want 
to win," he says. 

Still, the sport at Elon was built 
on fun. The tradition of post-game 
"around the tub" socials with op- 
ponents continues, and probably 
will, whether Elon lacrosse remains 
a winning club or becomes a win- 
ning team. And the players will 
likely remain, as Taylor calls them. 
"wild, but dedicated."

Long Named Director of Alumni 
and Parent Relations 



William G. Long, director of founda- 
tions and grants and former dean 
of student affairs at Eion, has been 
named director of alumni and 
parent relations. 

Long holds B.A. and M.A. 
degrees from West Virginia Univer- 
sity and earned an M.Div. degree 
in religion and higher education at 
Yale University- He served as dean 
of men at the University of North 
Carolina and dean of student af- 
fairs at Kalamazoo College before 
joining the Elon staff as dean of 
student affairs in 1974- Long, who is 
also an associate professor of 
political science, became director of 
foundations and grants in 1983. 

Dr. Jo Watts Williams, vice presi- 
dent for development, stated that 
Long is well qualified for the posi- 
tion. "He has been with the college 
for 12 years and has been highly 
innovative and successful in all of 
his duties," she said, "We could not 
have a better person to direct such 
an important part of our college 
program." 

"I am extremely enthusiastic 
about this new work," said Long, 
who estimates that he has worked 
with thousands of students and 
"taught hundreds" at Elon, and who 
worked with the parents council at 




Kalamazoo College. His goal as 
director, he said, will be to incor- 
porate alumni and parents more ful- 
ly into the college community. "We 
want alumni and parents to know 
that their views and insights are 
highly valued and that they are im- 
portant in the formation of Elon 
College's future," he stated. 

Long replaces Susie Bullard San- 
ford '79, who recently accepted a 
position in the accounting office at 
Elon. 



A New Approach to Career Day 
Brings Alumni to Campus 



Eight alumni returned to Elon in 
March to share their experiences as 
career professionals in what proved 
to be a successful new approach to 
the traditional career day program, 

Instead of having a career day 
fair, with students dropping by to 
talk to alumni stationed in a cen- 
tral location, the alumni visited 
specific classes and spoke informally 
about their careers. Some of the 
topics they addressed were how 
they chose their career areas, how 
they got their first job, and what a 
typical work day is like. They also 
talked about the rewards and 
frustrations of their work and the 
academic preparation necessary for 
their particular career. 

Bryant Colson, a 1980 graduate 
majoring in political science, is cur- 
rently a branch operations manager 
for Wachovia Bank. He visited 
economics, business administration, 
political science and English classes. 

Physical education majors Young 
Mitchell '79, a sergeant with the 
N.C. Department of Corrections. 
Andria McDowell Smith '70, a 
teacher-coach at East Davidson 
High School, and Dean Coleman 



'69, director of the Alamance 
County Recreation Department, 
tearhed up to visit the physical 
education department. 

Speaking to the human services 
department were Drew Van Horn 
'82, state program director for the 
Fellowship of Christian Athletes; 
Sandra Reid '85. juvenile court 
counselor; Greg Seel, a corporal 
with the crime prevention unit of 
the Burlington Police Department; 
and Suzanne Fischel, a reservation 
sales agent with Piedmont Airlines. 

Branching out... 

A moment of reflection near the 
entrance of Whitley Auditorium 
sparked the idea for a gift to Elon 
from Student Government Presi- 
dent Shane Jones '86. 

Jones chose to remember his col- 
legiate roots by presenting the col- 
lege with an oak tree — giving new 
life to the spot where the former 
senior oak once stood. 

Shane Jones' '86 gift proves he was 
barking up the right tree.

On Friday night, April 11, about 
50 Elon alumni and friends enjoyed 
the sounds of the Emanons at the 
annual Greater Charlotte Area 
Alumni Chapter dance. The gather- 
ing was held at Charlotte's Myers 
Park Country Club and featured 
the final performance of the 
Emanons under Dr. Jack White, 
who retires this spring after 23 
years of directing the group. Stan 
Butler '78, president of the Greater 



Charlotte Chapter, and his wife, 
Martha '77, organized the event, 
along with Nancy and Bill '40 
Stewart, Elizabeth and Dale '68 
Morrison, Woody Wilson '38, 
Jeanne '45 and Dan '48 Harrell, 
Sandy '80 and Clay Lemons and 
Lib and Bob '44 Johnston. W.E. 
"Buster" Butler '44 and his wife, 
Mary '49, were special out-of-town 
guests of the Charlotte Chapter. 
College staff members in atten- 
dance were Dr. Jo Watts Williams 
'55, vice president for development, 
with her husband, Bill '50, and 
Susie Bullard Sanford '79, director 
of alumni and parent programs.

Greek Alumni 
Weekend-A 
New Tradition 

March 14-16 was a sunny weekend 
for the more than 200 alumni who 
joined their brothers and sisters on 
campus for the first annual Greek 
Alumni Weekend. Sponsored by 
the Elon College Greek Alumni 
Council, the weekend featured 
various activities for the alumni of 
each group. Alumni joined active 
fraternity and sorority members for 
basketball and softball games, mix- 
ers, cookouts and brunches during 
the three-day event. 

Saturday evening about 100 
Greek alumni from all organizations 
gathered for a picnic dinner at the 



Elon Lodge. The dinner was plann- 
ed and organized by Lisa Guyton 
Melton '81, chairman of Greek 
Alumni Weekend, and Tim Moore 
'78, chairman of the Greek Alumni 
Council. "The dinner for all Greek 
alumni— and the entire weekend- 
were a great success," said Moore. "I 
believe that it will develop into a 
highlight of the year for all Greeks 
at Elon." 

A number of college staff 
members were present at the picnic: 
Dr. Jo Watts Williams '55, vice 
president for development; Dr. Jerry 
Tolley, director of corporate and an- 
nual resources; Susie Bullard San- 
ford '79. director of alumni and 
parent programs; Scott Stevenson 
'80, admissions counselor; and Bob 
Moser '86. administrative assistant 
for development.

ELON COMPUTER HELPS STUDENTS DEFINE 
CAREER CHOICES 



By Susan Klopman 

What shall I study? What courses 
do I take? I like psychology, but 
what kind of job can I get? How 
do 1 know what career best suits 
me? The questions seem endless, 
and too often the answers aren't 
really answers; they seem more like 
accidents. 

Elon College students are now 
using computers to find answers to 
the difficult, sometimes overwhelm- 
ing, questions about choosing a 
career. The System of Interactive 
Guidance and Information, better 
known as SIGl, is a computer-based 
program designed to help students 
identify their values and interests 
and match them with career choices 
and opportunities- Elon is one of a 
handful of North Carolina colleges 
and universities who have purchas- 
ed the highly acclaimed software. 

Developed by Martin Kati of 
Educational Testing Service, the 
program leads the student through 
questions like: What do I want? 
What am I good at? What occupa- 
tions might I like? Can I do what's 
required? The student selects 
various responses and the computer 
begins to put together a picture of 
the student and his suitability for 
certain occupations. He may 
discover career opportunities that 
he had never even considered. He 
can also begin to develop a clear 
plan of study that fits with his in- 
terests and values. 

SlGI also contains information 
about 300 occupations. The data is 
based on national statistics and is 
updated annually. Betsey Savage, 
director of career planning, noted 
that in addition to containing the 
most up-to-date career information, 



"SIGI makes the information perti- 
nent to the individual." She sees 
the program as a "translator." "It 
makes the connection between col- 
lege study and careers," she said. 

"Career planning is ideally a four- 
year program," Savage explained. "It 
should begin in the freshman year 
as a student seeks to define his 
values and interests and to identify 
his options. This leads to more in- 
tentional course selection and helps 
with the choice of a major. Finally 
SIGI identifies what and where the 
market is when the student is ready 
to enter." 

Senior John Moorefield worked 
with SIGI to explore his interest in 
banking. "SIGI gave me a lot of in- 
formation about a banking career, 
including the various positions, 
salary ranges and locations where 
the banking industry is growing 
most rapidly," he said. Later in one 
of his interviews with a bank, 
Moorefield presented the SIGI com- 
puter printout which indicated his 
educational background as well as 
his personal interests. 

"I immediately got a second-level 
interview," he said. "I guess the 
banker was impressed with the 
'homework' I'd done." So for 
Moorefield, SIGI not only enabled 
him to explore the world of bank- 
ing from a practical standpoint, but 
it also helped him clarify and artic- 
ulate his suitability for such a career. 

Freshman Cassie McFarland has 
used SIGI as one part of Elon's 
career education program. "The 
whole program has helped me 
define some areas of interest. I have 
a better understanding of courses I 
need to pursue those interests," 




Betsey Savage, director of career planning, guides Maria Martin through the 
SIGI computer program.

Jack Utz and Jeff McKenzie became 
good friends during their Elon Col- 
lege days. Both played football and 
both belonged to Kappa Psi Nu 
(now Kappa Alpha). 1977 marked 
the year of their graduation. Utz 
majored in business; McKenzie in 
physical education. 

Another common thread they 
discovered during those college days 
was their interest in business, par- 
ticularly the screen printing 
business. It all began during Greek 
Week in the spring of '77.

)eff McKenzie and jack Utz 



Classmate Les Hall '77 wanted 
some T-shirts printed for the occa- 
sion. McKenzie had done some 
screen printing during high school, 
so he got the job. With homemade 
equipment set up in the spare 
bedroom at Utz's home, the two 
men turned out the first screen- 
printed apparel that was eventually 
to become the trademark of Mr. J's 
Silkscreen Printing, Inc. of 
Burlmgton. 

"We really began with almost a 
'hobbyish' attitude," McKenzie 
remembered. "By 1978 we had filled 
Jack's spare bedroom with equip- 
ment. The paint smell was awful. 
so we decided we needed to find a 
better place to work." 

"We had no money. We started 
with zero investment." Utz added. 
"We took our homemade 
equipment— frames and presses— 
and rented the little building across 
the street," he said, pointing to a 
brown building on East Webb 
Avenue in Burlington that is not 
nearly as large as their present 
facilities. 

"The next task was to 'find 
business,' " McKenzie laughed. "We 
were able to get some T-shirts on 
credit through the mother of one 
of our college friends. As we sold 
the shirts, we were able to pay our 
bills. That's the way it went for the 
first two or three years." 

During the third year, the two 
began to make a little money for 
themselves. Each year since then, 
sales have surpassed the previous 
year. Business is definitely growing. 

Now Mr. J's Silkscreen Printing. 
Inc. has warehouse and printing 
facilities under one roof Inventory 
ranges from 2,000 to 4,000 dozen 
product items, which they now buy 
directly from the manufacturer. T 
shirts are only part of the business. 
They can print almost anything. In 
fact, some of their recent work has 
including etching computer circuit 
boards. "We have just computerized 
our screen inventory," Utz said. "I 
think we have about 7,000 screens." 

The business employs ten people, 
including two designers. "We aren't 
really an art design business," Utz 
said, "but if a customer comes in 
without a design, we can produce 
that for him too. The main thing 
we are interested in is turning out a 
top quality product that pleases the 
customer." 



Significant among Mr. J's 
customers are Elon College and 
many of the friends the two men 
made while they were in school. 
"We have never had to do much 
paid advertising," McKenzie noted. 
"We get a lot of business just by 
word of mouth. Our products are 
the best ads." 

Each year Mr. J's supplies the 
Elon football team with practice 
shirts and towels. The wrestling. 
tennis and basketball teams also use 
items printed at Mr. J's, Among the 
many alumni customers are Keith 
Hall '72, owner of TK. Tripps 
restaurant chain, and country 
singer Joe West 74. West's logo, the 
Blue Cowboy, appears as a stun- 
ning print on the back o( a jacket. 
Suppliers have included Royal Tex- 
tile Mills, co-owned by Chip At- 
water '77. 

Utz and McKenzie serve as 
owners, managers and sales force 
for their business. "We have begun 
to train people to take over some of 
the specific responsibilities," McKen- 
zie said. Despite the fact the two 
men have been the backbone of 
the organization, they credit their 
employees with the real success of 
the business. "Our employees really 
care about the work we do. They 
are here to see that our standards 
are met," Utz added. 

Obviously meeting standards and 
producing top quality screen prints 
have been part of the secret to 
building this successful business. 
Another part seems to be the 
genuine friendship and compatibili- 
ty that exist between McKenzie and 
Utz. It is a friendship that extends 
to off hours too. Both have families 
that they list as their number one 
interest. Utz's wife is the former Pat 
Detomo 76. They have two 
children: Bradley. 4. and Emily, 3. 
McKenzie and his wife, Julie, also 
have two children: Chad, 4, and 
Jennabeth, I. When not with their 
families or at work, Utz and 
McKenzie are often out hunting or 
playing racquetball— in screen 
printed T-shirts, of course.

a'Airwolf fans know 
they are looking at 
the future of avic 
tion as they 
- watch the sleek 

black jet-powered 
helicopter dart 
across the television 
screen on Saturday night. In only a 
few seconds, this amazing craft 
slowly rises from the depths of its 
cavernous hangar then rips through 
the sky with jet engines whining. 

To the technical eye. Airwolf is a 
combination of advanced com- 
posites, vertical lift and forward 
thrust. So is Bell Helicopter's amaz- 

new aircraft with tilt-rotor 
engines. If none of that makes 
sense, just ask Elon alumnus Elias 
J. (Lee) Shahwan 74, senior 
engineer for advanced composites 
at Bell Helicopter Textron, Fort 
Worth, Texas. Somehow he makes 
it all sound simple, or at least 
understandable. 

Shahwan is a senior engineer at 
work on the leading edge of avia- 
tion history. He is in charge of ad- 
vanced composites materials and 
process selection for the tilt-rotor 
airplane. He also reviews and ap- 
proves the drawings, material and 
process specifications for the V-22 
Osprey, the military version of the 
tilt-rotor aircraft. 

What are these advanced com- 
posites? And what is a tilt-rotor air- 
craft? Advanced composites are 
basically lightweight, nonmetallic 
material systems. They are composed 
of a high strength fiber embedded 
m plastic or some other common 
matrix. While that definition prob- 
ably conjures up visions of highly 
sophisticated aerospace components, 
most of us have actually handled ad- 
vanced composites when we pick up 
a new tennis racket, golf club or fish- 
ing rod. Advanced composites are 
replacing aluminum and steel in 
many product designs. Lightweight 
and strong, advanced composites are 
replacing some of the traditional ma- 
terials used in airplane construction. 



In flight, the tilt-rotor aircraft 
looks like any other small plane. Its 
style of landing sets it apart. As the 
plane approaches the airport, the 
propellers rotate upward, allowing 
the plane to land like a helicopter. 
"The concept of changing a heli- 
copter to a helicopter-airplane is 
about 20 years old," Shahwan said. 
Development has been prolonged 
because of the complexity of the tilt- 
rotor itself and the fact that it uses 
structures never used before, accord- 
ing to Shahwan. 

What brought Shahwan and the 
tilt-rotor together? Actually the 
roots of the association lead all the 
way back to Elon. Shahwan majored 
in chemistry, an essential for know- 
ledge of composites construction. 
Specific study at N.C. State Univer- 
sity led to the M.S. degree in 
materials engineermg, with a minor 
in mechanical engineering. With 
this background, in 1978 he was 
recruited by Boeing Commercial 
Airplane Company. Recruitment 
did not stop there. In 1983 while 
working on a Boeing project with 
Bell Helicopter, he was offered a 
position with Bell. Acceptance 
meant moving his wife. Donna 
Knott '76, and three children. 



Jamie, 5, Gabriel, 3'/2, and Paul, I, 
from the mountains of Washington 
state to the flatlands of Texas. 

Shahwan is excited about his work. 
"It is a great feeling to work on a 
project from the conceptual idea 
to the actual hardware that will be 
flying." he said. "In the future, heli- 
copters and small airplanes will 
convert to this tilt-rotor because of 
its versatility." 

Shahwan is making history. Ex- 
actly what shape the history will 
take is left to the future. Airports 
will be the place to look. Spot-land- 
ing pads may eventually replace 
miles of concrete runways. The 
demands on airports could be 
greatly reduced, according to 
Shahwan and the other experts. 

Imagine boarding a quiet, comfor- 
table, 36-seat tilt-rotor aircraft to 



commute between New York's Ken- 
nedy International and LaGuardia 
airports. The New York Port 
Authority is so interested in the 
possibility that it is spending 
$230,000 to study how the aircraft 
can be used to reduce airport con- 
gestion. Congress is investing too. It 
has earmarked $584 million in the 
Pentagon's budget for continued 
development of the tilt-rotor 
aircraft. 

Although Shahwan's investment 
in this wonder plane will probably 
never be counted in dollars, no 
doubt it will offer him a wealth of 
satisfaction to know he played a 
major role in aviation history.

Estate Planning: 

An Investment in Tomorrow 



MAKING YOUR WILL 

Part a 

The story goes that Howard 
Hughes left a financial empire 
valued at more than $2 billion 
when he died. But he apparently 
did not leave a will. A large 
number of wills, purportedly made 
by Hughes, have been brought for- 
ward, but none has been allowed as 
valid. According to most reports, 
two-thirds or more of adult 
Americans, like Hughes, die 
without wills (intestate), 
The one unanimous recom- 
, mendation you will get from your 
1 attorney, accountant, bank trust of- 
V ficer. and other estate planners is 
J that you should prepare a valid 
;- will. Making a will is not only the 
i:^ exercising of a basic American right 
- but also the only way you can be 
i; sure that your property will be 

distributed according to your wishes 
f: after your death. If you die intestate 
- (without a will), a probate court 
Twill parcel out your property 
i according to the intestacy laws of 
your state, without regard to any 
^ preferences you may have had. 
A will enables you to accomplish 
a number of other important objec- 
tives, in addition to having your 
estate distributed as you wish. With 
a valid will you can; 
(;;■ 

1:1. Make settlement of your estate as 
"^ trouble-free and smooth as possi- 
ble, ensuring against family con- 
flicts or litigation, 

2. Avoid unnecessary taxes, legal 
fees, and administrative costs. 

3. Transfer much or all of your 
estate to your beneficiaries 
without going through the pro- 
bate procedure. 

4. Name a qualified executor and, if 
it seems wise, an alternate ex- 
ecutor in case the executor can- 
not or will not serve. 

5- Name a guardian if you have 
minor children, in case your 
spouse does not survive you. 

6. Guard against lack of manage- 
ment experience or competence 
in investing on the part of your 
spouse, children, or other 
beneficiaries by setting up life in- 
come plans or other special ar- 
rangements, with competent 
management assured. 

7. Establish one or more trusts for 
the benefit of your spouse, 
children, or other beneficiaries 
and name a competent trustee 
for each trust that is established. 

8. Make gifts of appreciation to 
friends. 

9. Secure "the benefits which flow 
from wealth" and extend your in- 
fluence beyond your own lifetime 
through bequests to causes and 
institutions which you have lov- 
ed and believed in. 

The particular objectives which 
an individual wants to achieve by 
writing a will are likely to vary ac- 
cording to his or her wishes, family 



circumstances, the thoroughness 
with which plans for the wilt have 
been made, the size and complexity 
of the estate, the number and kinds 
of bequests, whether trusts have 
been created, and the advice receiv- 
ed from the attorney and other ad- 
visers. For instance, a testator (one 
who has made a legally valid will) 
who has a mentally handicapped 
son or daughter has had a focal 
concern in writing a will that so- 
meone with normal children, or no 
children at all, would not have 
had. Or a testator whose spouse 
has been a fully active partner in 
the family business has probably 
had a different outlook than 
another whose spouse has had no 
experience, or possibly not even 
personal interest, in managing 
assets or making investments. 

One possible objective in writing 
a will—one which was not listed 
before and is too seldom 
discussed — is disinheritance. You 
may not disinherit your spouse 
completely, but you are generally 
not required to leave your property 
to anyone else, even children. 
Among children, you may have 
reasons other than your own likes 
or dislikes for preferring one over 
another, such as the one with 
greatest need over another who has 
acquired substantial wealth of his 
own; or one who has been lovingly 
attentive to parents over one who 
has paid little or no attention to 
them. 

If disinheritance is one of your 
objectives, be sure to have your at- 
torney pay particular attention to 
how this is written into the will. In 
the case of children, it is probably 
wise to mention their names and 
tactfully state the reason for the 
disinheritance. From a legal stand- 
point, this will show that you have 
not left them out by mistake or 
through oversight. It may also pro- 
tect against later claims of undue 
influence, lack of capacity to make 
a will, or fraud. The point here is 
not one of justification of what you 
have decided but of validating your 
will. Also, be sure that all of your 
property is disposed of by your will. 
Your attorney can take care of this 
with a residuary clause. 

Should your spouse have a will? 
Most definitely. Your spouse should 
have a will for many if not most of 
the same reasons you need a will. If 
you are a man and your wife is the 
same age as you, the odds are 
about three to two that she will 
outlive you. Your estate planning 
should take these odds into ac- 
count. If she does outlive you, she 
will have her own estate, plus what 
she inherits from you, to take care 
of and pass on in accordance with 
her wishes. But what if she does 
nor outlive you? What about the 
possibility of simultaneous death? 



What tax implications need to be 
kept in mind? 

Your attorney's answers to these 
questions will likely substantiate the 
need for each spouse to have an in- 
dividual will. Joint, mutual, and 
reciprocal wills are generally 
undesirable and likely to cause un- 
necessary problems. 

More women than men die in- 
testate. This suggests that many 
women have either felt that wills 
were unnecesary, or decided that 
they did not own enough to justify 
making wills, or thought that only 
those women who were widows 
should make wills. Women now 
own and control much of the 
wealth in this country. What hap- 
pens if a woman puts off making a 
will until she becomes incompetent? 
What happens if a man and wife 
are in a common disaster and she 
survives him briefly but then dies? 
Ask your attorney these questions. 

PROCRASTINATION IS THE 
ENEMY 

Your will should be made now. 
You need a will now to take care of 
present and foreseeable needs. If 
you put it off, it may never get 
done. In particular, older persons 
who do not have wills should make 
them while they have the physical, 
mental, and emotional energy and 
alertness to think clearly, know 
their own minds, and attend to the 
details of planning and executing 
their wills. They run a greater risk 
of waiting too long, of becoming 
incompetent, or of being unduly in- 
fluenced by others. 

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO? 

Do you need an attorney to 
prepare your will? The answer to 
that is yes. Even for a simple will, 
an attorney can make sure the will 
is in good legal form and is com- 
plete. For such a will, the fee will 
be modest. You can find out what 
the fee will be ahead of time. 

If your estate is extensive and the 
objectives for your will are complex, 
you and your attorney may need 
advice from a tax accountant, a 
trust officer, or other advisers in 
order to prevent tax erosion of your 
estate, guard against legal problems 
which could arise during the pro- 
bate and settlement procedures, and 
provide for proper management of 
estate assets during the setdement 
process and of any trusts which 
have been established by the will. 

When you create a trust, you 
turn property over to a qualified 
trustee to be held and managed for 
the benefit of one or more other 
persons or institutions. Why would 
you want to establish a testamen- 
tary trust (a crust established by 
your will)? 
1. A trust may save taxes for your 

estate, for your spouse's estate, or 



for the estates of other 
beneficiaries of your will. 

2. A trust can protect against the 
immaturity, inexperience, or in- 
competence of your heirs or 
named beneficiaries by turning 
over the management of your 
property to a qualified trustee. 

3. A trust can protect your spouse 
or other beneficiaries by assuring 
them of an income for life, in- 
cluding invasion of principal if 
necessary, w^iile still passing on 
the remaining principal to your 
favorite charitable institution. 

4. A trust is an astonishingly flexi- 
ble and legal way to pass on ad- 
vantages of your estate to loved 
ones while protecting the assets 
and providing for their final 
disposition. 

An attorney who is experienced 
in the use of trusts can advise you 
whether you should make use of a 
trust and, if so, what kind of trust 
you should create. And even 
though we have been dealing here 
with trusts created by will, the in- 
formation given is generally ap- 
plicable to inier vivos trusts (living 
trusts or trusts created by you dur- 
ing your lifetime). 

You can reduce the cost of mak- 
ing your will by being prepared 
when you go to see your attorney. 
Think about your objectives. Write 
them out on paper, then revise and 
rewrite them. When you go to your 
attorney be prepared to explain 
what you want to do. The better 
prepared you are, the less of the at- 
torney's time will be required and 
the lower your cost will be. 

Your lawyer will need to know all 
the pertinent facts concerning your 
property and personal information 
about you, your family, and your 
intended beneficiaries. He or she 
will need to know about your plans 
for charitable bequests, including 
charitable remainder interests in 
any trusts you may establish. 

The most effective way for you to 
supply the information your lawyer 
will need is to prepare a memoran- 
dum of your personal affairs. Once 
prepared, this memorandum can be 
duplicated, and copies of it can be 
supplied not only to your attorney 
but to your spouse, the executor 
you have named in your will, and 
any other trusted person who 
might be of help in an emergency. 
In addition to helping your at- 
torney understand what is involved 
in the drafting of your will and in- 
forming your executor, spouse, or 
others who will have responsibilities 
for administering your estate,

ministering your estate. This infor- 
mation will conserve your at- 
torney's time, reduce the cost of 
preparing your will, and help to in- 
sure that your will is tailor-made 
for your purposes. 

WHEN DO YOU NEED TO 
CHANGE YOUR WILL? 

No matter how careful you and 
your attorney have been in prepar- 
ing your will, you will need to be 
alert to changes in your situation 
which call for a reassessment of 
your will. A good rule might be, 
even when no major changes have 
occurred, to review your will every 
three years to be sure it is still up- 
to-date. In addition to the three- 
year review, you should rethink 
your will when major changes take 
place. Among the changes calling 
for review are these: 

1. You have changed your mind 
about one or more provisions 
in your wilt. 

2. You have married, separated, 
divorced, or remarried since 
your will was made. 

3. Children or grandchildren have 
been born or adopted. 

4. Children or grandchildren have 
changed their marital status. 

5. You have changed your life in- 
surance program, disposed of 
property, or acquired new pro- 
perty through purchase or 
inheritance. 

6. A beneficiary of your will has 
died or had a change in status 
which causes you to want to 
review the bequest. 

7. You have suffered serious finan- 
cial losses. 

8. The executor, alternate ex- 
ecutor, or guardian has died or 
is no longer able or willing to 
serve. 

9. You have moved to another 
state or acquired real property 
in another state, 

10. The tax laws have changed in a 
way to make a review of your 
will advisable. 

11. Your family relationships, 
friendships, or charitable in- 
terests have changed. 



You can make a simple change in 
your will by the addition of a 
codicil (amendment). However, 
when you want to make major 
changes, it is better to revise and 
rewrite the will. As in the case of 
the initial will, you should have 
your attorney write the final draft 
of 3 codicil or of a completely revis- 
ed will. The assurance that your 
will is in the best legal form, 
carefully designed to hold up dur- 
ing probate and the settlement pro- 
cess, is well worth what your at- 
torney will charge you. 

HOW "TO INCLUDE ELON IN 
YOUR WILL 

Bequests (gifts by will) have 
become a significant part of the 
charitable income Elon College 
receives, A will gift to Elon may 
save taxes for your estate. Also, giv- 
ing to Elon by will allows you to 
keep control of assets as long as 
you live and. by establishing a 
trust, as long as your spouse or any 
other income beneficiary lives. This 
enables you to protect your own 
financial security and look after 
loved ones, while ultimately making 
a substantial gift to Elon College. 

Your bequest to Elon can be an 
outright gift of money, securities, 
real estate, or personal property. It 
can be stated as a specific sum, a 
percent of the net estate, all or part 
of the residue, specified property, or 
any combination of these. Or Elon 
College can be made the 
beneficiary of a testamentary trust. 

Before you have your will written, 
write or call the Elon College 
planned giving officer and arrange 
to discuss how your will gift can 
best be made. If you want to be 
sure that your bequest is used for a 
particular purpose, discuss with the 
planned giving officer how this can 
be done without causing institu- 
tional problems in the future. Then 
your lawyer can draft your will in 
accordance with your plans and in 
a form suited to the laws of your 
state. 

LIFETIME GIFTS AS A PART OF 
ESTATE PLANNING 

You can reduce estate taxes and 
probate costs by making gifts to 
Elon College during your lifetime. 
Lifetime gifts are not included in 
your estate for probate or estate tax 
purposes. You can avoid capital 
gains tax on gifts of appreciated 
property, and all gifts to Elon 
qualify for income tax charitable 
deductions at the time the gifts are 
made. 

Elon College life income plans 
provide opportunities for you to 
support the college while qualifying 
for tax benefits and supplementing 



your retirement income or pro- 
viding life income for your spouse 
or other designated beneficiary. 
One of these life income plans 
might well fit into your overall tax 
and estate planning. 

Another remarkable charitable 
gift technique allows you to give a 
home (including a "second" or 
vacation home, condominium, or 
apartment) or a farm to Elon Col- 
lege, take a substantial charitable 
tax deduction now, and still retain 
lifetime rights to the control and 
use of the property. This method of 
giving has some advantages over 
giving the same property by will. 
The property is ultimately transfer- 
red to the college without being 
subject to probate costs or estate 
taxes. You get an income tax 
deduction now and can experience 
the satisfaction of making the gift 
during your lifetime.

Isabella Cannon and the Honorable 
Thad Eure, chairman of the Elon College 
Board of Trustees, were featured recentlv 
in a Raleigh Neu's and Obsen'sr article 
about grown-up security blankets. The 
Linus-and-his-blanket image speaks clearly 
to all adults who fee! lost without a 
special object, habit or routine. 

Mrs. Cannon is not a blanket carrier; 
she is a collector of tennis shoes— all 
kinds and sizes. The former mayor of 
Raleigh noted, "I'm always known as the 
little old lady in tennis shoes." She's not 
always tied into tennis shoes, but she 
does wear them for walking, jogging or 
working in the yard— just enough to keep 
the image alive. Actually she is just keep- 
ing up with the younger generation. Liv- 
ing near an elementary school and N.C. 
State University provides her with lots of 
data on current shoe trends. "I sec hun- 
dreds of students go by everyday," she 
said. "What are they wearing? They're 
wearing tennis shoes." 

Eure, N.C,'s secretary of state for the 
past 50 years, has several trademarks—a 
vide red bow tie, a straw boater hat for 
the summer months, and for all seasons, 
3 signature in green ink. "Before felt-tip 
pens came into vogue. I had used five 
gallons of green ink— that would be about 
enough to turn North Carolina green," 
Eure said. That's probably not an exag- 
geration since he has signed papers and 
documents for 13 N.C. governors over the 
years!

Howard W. "Doc" Fite has had 

baseball in his blood for years. At Elon 
he played for one year under Coach 
"Peahead" Walker, but at home in Lex- 
ington, N.C, he lived baseball day and 
night with his father, "Pops" Fite, who 
helped bring professional baseball to their 
hometown in 1937- 

Fite had always planned to turn the 
family baseball memorabilia into a scrap- 
book, but there was just too much. The 
scrapbook became a book entitled Four In- 
dian Summen, and in it, Fite has captured 
Lexington baseball history from 1937-1940. 

Before adding authorship to his list of 
credentials, File has been an active com- 
munity leader in Lexington. He is a 
former president and board member of 
the YMCA, a former member of the 
school board, and the recipient of the 
1965 Lexington Distinguished Citizen 
Award. 

Fite retired in 1983. He and his wife, 
Betty, enjoy traveling and gardening when 
he's not watching guess what!

"Country" Gorman Is One 
of the Best 



On a Sunday in February, rhere was 
a reception in Atlanta in tribute to 
Oscar Banks "Country" Gorman '22. 
American Humanics, Inc. presented 
Gorman with the Trustee for Life 
Award. Country is one of only four 
leaders to receive this distinguished 
honor. 

American Humanics, Inc. serves 
the Boy Scouts and ten affiliated 
agencies with programs to prepare 
young people for professional careers 
in youth service. Gorman helped 
found the organization in 1948 and 
has previously received the Founders 
Award for his 40 years of work. 

"It's hard for me to believe that it 
has been my good fortune to have 
the people of Atlanta and this area 
give me a place in their hearts," 
Gorman wrote recently to his long- 
time friend "Foots" Fesmire '24. 

As "Country" wrote to "Foots"; 
"Most people fight nicknames. You 
and I had the good sense to utilize 
ours. . -Life has been good to you 
and me. Most of mine I would glad- 
ly live over. Life has been for you as 
for me, 'an enjoyable journey.' " 

Born in 1899 in Carbarrus Coun- 
ty, North Carolina, Gorman's 
journey has been distinguished by 
service in many areas. Civic clubs 
and many national organizations 
have honored him- Among the 
awards have been Man of the Year 
awards from both Civitan and 
Rotary clubs and the Fifty Year Ser- 
vice Award from the Atlanta Rotary 
Club. He has also been elected an 
Honorary Board Member for Life at 
St. Mark's United Methodist Church. 

In a wonderful moment in his 
letter, Gorman wrote: "My wife 
says there is a saying among actors— 



'you better get off the stage before 
you get the hook!' She informs me 
that 1 am supposed to be retired 
since 1964." 

Retirement has not lulled Gorman 
into less activity; in fact, it has add- 
ed some new dimensions to his life. 
As Gorman wrote, retirement now 
also means he has three jobs for 
which he is "totally unqualified!" 
The first is cook; "As an old Boy 
Scout, I am trying to learn indoor 
cooking." Second is housekeeper 
and "I am rated at the bottom" he 
confessed. Third is nurse and "I am 
ICX) percent inept," he added. 

In closing, Gorman conveyed to 
Fesmire the hope that the two of 
them "can visit dear old Elon to- 
gether. They have made a lot of 
progress since we left," he said. A 
lot has changed at Elon smce 1922, 
but a tradition of outstanding com- 
munity service by alumni like 
"Country" Gorman is one thing 
that has remained constant. 



of Elon College. She has also been a high 
school teacher, public school ad- 
ministrator and visiting professor at the 
University of North Carolina at Chapel 
Hill. A native of Roxboro, Strum earned 
an M.Ed, at the University of North 
Carolina at Greensboro and a Ph.D. from 
the University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill-

however, and back to Cameroon they go 
for another four years. Ken is a mis- 
sionarv with Wycliffe Bible Translators,

Though their time in the States has in- 
troduced them to the wonders of He- 
Man. Go-Bois, Cabbage Patch dolls and

with activities related to their return to 
Cameroon. Ken took a French course and 
a Bible course, received a long-awaited 
computer (which he will operate on solar 
power m Cameroon), and has been seek- 
ing funds ($8,000) for a new truck they

Smithwick Develops a Taste 
for Retirement 



When Robert B. (Bob) Smithwick 
'52 retired from his position as a 
vice president of Texaco USA two 
years ago, he and wife Faye '52 
vowed that they would never move 
again. After all, his various duties 
with Texaco over the years had 
caused them to move 19 times in 
30 years, living in houses for as lit- 
tle as five days. Bob and Faye pro- 
bably thought when they settled in 
his native Hampton Roads, Va., 
that he would also remain retired. 

But though Norfolk is entirely to 
Bob Smithwick's liking, retirement 
was not. So, at age 58, he has 
taken on a new challenge, accepting 
the position of director of develop- 
ment for the city of Norfolk. He 
was selected over 65 applicants for 
the job, which he looks at with 
characteristic enthusiasm. "Norfolk 
has a great deal to offer," he says, 
and he intends to attract business 
to the seaside city by using its con- 
siderable resources. 

Smithwick began his move up the 
corporate ladder at Texaco after his 
graduation from Elon in 1952 and 
later graduate studies in business at 
the University of Virginia. He join- 
ed Texaco in 1953 after working as 
a teacher and athletic coach in 
Guilford County. Moving from 
salesman to general sales manager 
of the marketing department to 
vice president in charge of person- 
nel, labor and public relations was 
a long road for him, one that took 
him to hundreds of foreign coun- 




trie'^ and numerous cities When he 
settled back into Norfolk upon 
retirement in 1983, he became an 
executive financial consultant, serv- 
ed on the board of Stewart Sand- 
wiches, Inc. and dabbled in 
building projects. He was also a 
guest lecturer at Old Dominion 
University. Smithwick serves on the 
Presidential Board of Advisers at 
Elon as well as the advisory board 
for Virginia Wesieyan College. 

Bob Smithwick's business exper- 
tise and love for the city should 
make the Norfolk development post 
a perfect match for his talents. Cer- 
tainly he will make his mark in 
Norfolk, as he did at Texaco— even 
if he does eventually decide to set- 
tle into a life of leisure for good.

Tapscott '60 
Goes to Head 
of the Class 

In her 25 years as an educator, Bar- 
bara McCauley Tapscott has done 
everything from teach verb conjuga- 
tions to develop statewide curricu- 
lum guidelines. 

She began her career in I960 as a 
brand new Elon graduate teaching 
Enghsh, French and biology in Ala- 
mance County's Pleasant Grove 
High School. Today she is assistant 
superintendent of instruction for the 
Burlington City Schools and the 
newly elected vice chairman of the 
North Carolina State Board of 
Education, 

Tapscott was first appointed to the 
13-member state board in 1981. The 
board is responsible for setting edu- 
cational policy for the state's public 
schools. 

As vice chairman Tapscott replaces 
Mebane M. Pritchett, executive di- 
rector of the John Motley Morehead 
Foundation, who was elected chair- 
man. Pritchett fills the position held 
by CD. Spangler Jr., new president 
of the University of North Carolina 
system. 

The new responsibility will mean 
regular trips to Raleigh for Tapscott 
to attend the board's monthly two- 
day meetings. The largest current 
project for the group is their Basic 
Education Plan, an eight-year plan 
designed to reduce class size, stan- 
dardize the level of instruction and 
generally enhance quality in the 
state's public schools. The Career 
Ladder program, Quality Assurance 
in Teacher Education, and school 
system merger issue are other 
concerns. 

Tapscott received her A.B. degree 
in English from Elon in I960. She 
has also received master's and doc- 




toral degrees from the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

Tapscott has moved steadily up the 
ranks in the Burlington City Schools 
since joining the system as a teacher 
in 1962, having served as a principal, 
director of elementary education 
and director of secondary education. 
In 1985 she was named assistant 
superintendent for instruction. 

In recent years Tapscott has assist- 
ed in planning and implementing a 
number of major projects for the 
Burlington City Schools which have 
received wide attention and adop- 
tion. The Accountability in Primary 
Reading Program, which she helped 
to write and direct, went on to be- 
come a statewide reading program. 
Another program, the Right to 
Write, is also widely acclaimed. She 
is also a past chairperson of the 
North Carolina Competency Test 
Commission. 

Tapscott and her husband, Wil- 
liam, are the parents of two sons: 
Kent, a pharmacist in Graham, N.C.; 
and Kyle, a sophomore at N.C. 
State University.

Schumacher 
Aces State 
CPA Exam 

By Sue Brooks 

Elizabeth Schumacher kept her 

nose in a book for 11 weeks. 

"I did nothing but study," the 
Greensboro, woman said about the 
time she spent cramming for the 
state CPA exam. 

It was time we!l spent. 
Schumacher of 1817 Dunleith Way 
has just found out she made the 
top score on the test given in 
November 1985. 

"You are not only in an elite 
group of 4.6 percent who passed all 
four parts, but you also made the 
highest grade of all North Carolina 
candidates who attempted the ex- 
amination," the NC. State Board of 
CPA Examiners told her in a con- 
gratulatory tetter. The North 
Carolina CPA Foundation, Inc., 
then gave Schumacher its 
Katherine Guthrie Gold Medal 
Award, which she received March 
22 in Charlotte. 

Schumacher, 33, a supervisor in 
financial planning for AT&T's Pur- 
chasing and Transportation 
Organization, said the Lambers 
CPA review course, an U-week 
commercial course she took at the 
University of North Carolina at 
Greensboro, helped her 
tremendously. 

The relatively short, intensive 
review helps people pull together all 
they've learned throughout their 
college years, she said, However to 
make the course count, "you've got 
to be willing to give up a lot of 
personal time," Schumacher said. 

The test itself is a two-and-a-half 
day ordeal. "By the time Friday 
comes around, you're just ready to 
have a drink and go home," 
Schumacher said. 

She scored an average of 94.2 on 
the four parts of the exam. The 
series of tests is given twice a year 




by the state board. All states give 
the same test. 

Schumacher graduated from Eton 
College in 1974 with a double ma- 
jor in accounting and business 
administration. 

"Back when I had to make a 
decision about what I was going to 
do, I read an article in the 
newspaper saying that there were a 
lot of jobs in accounting," 
Schumacher said. "That's really 
what made me decide to go into 
accounting." 

She has worked for AT6iT at the 
Guilford Center on Mount Hope 
Church Road seven years, and 
plans to continue there for the 
foreseeable future, she said. Before 
working at ATGtT she was with 
Robertson Neal &. Co., a 
Greensboro CPA firm. 

The state CPA exam is offered 
twice a year, and about 1,350 peo- 
ple take it each time, said Nancy 
Moore, coordinator of examinations 
for the state board. Of the 1,346 
people who took the exam in 
November, 268 passed, Moore said. 
However, only 61 of those 268 pass- 
ed all four parts of the test on their 
first try. The other 207 people pass- 
ed one or more parts they had 
previously failed. 

"So Mrs. Schumacher was in a 
very elite group," Moore said.

Trustees 

Emeriti Gordon 
and Powell Die 

In early May Elon College lost two 
distinguished trustees emeriti, 
Clyde W. Gordon of Burlington, 
N.C, died suddenly at his home on 
May 4. Re.\ G. Powell of Fuquay- 
Varina, N.C, died on May 3 after a 
grave illness of several weeks. 

"Elon College is saddened by the 
loss of two very fine members of 
our college family," noted President 
Fred Young. "Both of these men 
gave a great deal o{ time to this col- 
lege. Always thinking far ahead, 
they were completely committed to 
our work here." 

Gordon was a graduate of Elon 
and served on the Board of 
Trustees from 1943 until 1972, fill- 
ing the position of secretary for 
many of those years. His active 
leadership on the board also includ- 
ed membership on the executive 
and finance committees. In 1974 he 
was named "Outstanding Alumnus 
of Elon College" and was awarded 
an honorary doctor of commercial 
science degree in 1978. 

Gordon's outstanding service to 
the college was representative of 
his involvement in business and 
community activities. After many 
years in the textile business, he 
served as chairman of the board of 
Pine Chemical, Inc. and vice presi- 
dent, secretary and treasurer of 
Comer-Gordon, Inc. 

He served on many regional and 
local boards and was honored 
several times as "Man of the Year" 
by civic and professional organiza- 
tions. Gordon was also a very ac- 
tive member of the First Christian 
United Church of Christ. 

Gordon is survived by his son, 
Clyde W. Gordon Jr., and daughter, 
Patricia Jennings, both of Burl- 
ington. Gordon and his family 
recently gave the college a gift to 
help construct the fine arts center. 
In recognition of the gift, the lake 
on Elon's north campus has been 



named Lake Mary Nell in honor of 
Gordon's granddaughter Mary Nell 
Jennings. 

Dr. Rex G. Powell was an active 
member of the Board of Trustees 
for 28 years before becoming a 
trustee emeritus in March 1985. He 
too served on the executive and 
finance committee for many years. 
Elon awarded Powell an honorary 
D.C.S. degree in 1979. 

Powell's successful business career 
was varied. He owned several 
automobile dealerships, a building 
supply company, and later was in- 
volved in the banking and in- 
surance industry. 

His civic activities extended to 
the state as well as the local level. 
Serving on regional planning com- 
missions, as mayor of Fuquay- 
Varina, and being honored as 
"Citizen of the Year" by his local 
Chamber of Commerce were only a 
few of his many distinctions. 

Powell was an active member of 
the Wake Chape! Christian Church 
of the United Church of Christ. In 
1984 Powell established the Wake 
Chapel Christian Church Scholar- 
ship Fund at Elon. 

Powell is survived by his widow, 
the former Ina Mae Byrd, and two 
daughters, Melinda P Suttenfield 
and Elizabeth P Conrad. 

Mary Graham 
Mackintosh '24 
Passes Away 

Mary Graham Lawrence Mackin- 
tosh of Elon College died suddenly 
at her home on May L She was 
the daughter of Annie Graham and 
Walter Phalti Lawrence, 1893 and 
1894 graduates and faculty members 
of Elon College. Her husband was 
the Reverend Thomas Harold 
Mackintosh. 

Mackintosh's family is well 
known to Elon historians. Her 
mother was a graduate of Graham 
and Elon colleges and an instructor 
at Elon. For several years before her 
death in 1969, she was the oldest 



living alumna of the college. 

Dr. Lawrence was a professor of 
English from 1898 until 1926. His 
service to Elon encompassed many 
areas, including dean of the college. 
In 1921 he was elected to the lower 
house of the N.C. General 
Assembly — the first and only time 
a faculty member of the college has 
been elected to the legislative body. 

Growing up as a faculty child 
provided Mackintosh with many 
memories. It was her family that 
was first notified by a student fran- 
tically banging on their front door 
on January 18, 1923, yelling: "Dr. 
Lawrence, the college is on fire!" 
The Main (Administration) 
Building was aflame. 

As a college student here, her 
career was distinguished by earning 
the title of Valedictorian of the 
Class of 1924. She then attended 
the New England Conservatory of 
Music in preparation for her many 
years as a piano teacher. 

Mackintosh always played an ac- 
tive role in the life of the college 
and recently shared her memories 
in an oral history recorded by the 
McEwen Library. She was serving 
on the college's Centennial Plann- 
ing Committee at the time of her 
death. 

She is survived by one brother, 
W. Phalti Lawrence Jr. of Hamilton, 
Ohio,

jRussell Gill Receives 1986-87 
Daniels- Danieley Award 

Each spring a special committee of 

students, senior faculty members 

and educators from outside the col- 
lege gather to evaluate nominations 

for the Daniels-Danieley Award for 

Excellence in Teaching. Established 

in 1972 by former president James 

Earl Danieley and his wife, Verona 

Daniels Danieley, in honor of their 

parents, the annual award 

recognizes an outstanding teacher 

each year with a certificate of 

recognition and a monetary award. 
Each year the award raises the 

question of what it means to be an 

excellent teacher. Students and col- 
leagues of Dr. Russell Gill, professor 

of English, have answered that 

question this year by pointing to 

him. As the recipient of the 

1986-87 Daniels-Danieley Award for 

Excellence in Teaching, Gill is 

described by a colleague in this 

way: 
"fxsr the depth of his knowledge, 

his sympathy and quiet dignity 

with all students, his creativity in 

the classroom, and his devotion to 

extending the range of all our 

teaching, Russell Gill is more than 

worthy of our lasting recognition." 
With characteristic modesty, 

Russell Gill disclaims any special 

knowledge of what makes a teacher 

excellent. In doing so, however, he 

unwittingly reveals his very own 
\ qualifications. 

i "A teacher offers himself as a per- 
i sonality; as a stimulus," he explains. 
■ "He offers an attitude and seeks to 
j motivate. I believe a teacher doesn't 
! teach; he provides the environment 
I for students to learn on their own." 
1 According to one of his students, 
I Gill's classroom always offers a pro- 
I ductive blend of instruction and 
I discussion. "He never shies away 
I from difficult questions," she com- 
! mented, "and he doesn't make us 
I feel uncomfortable with our ques- 
I tions, no matter what they are. I 
I always feel like he values my 
I thoughts, even if he doesn't agree." 
I Gill came to Elon in 1976. He 
I earned a bachelor's degree at The 



College of William and Mary. He 
received a master's degree and a 
doctoral degree in English from 
Harvard University. He is currently 
Chairman of the Department of 
Literature, Languages and 
Communications. 

In order to maintain his own 
high standards of scholarship. Gill 
spends a lot of time reading, re- 
searching and writing. In his words, 
"To be a professor means that you 
profess a discipline in many ways — 
teaching is just one of them." 
Broadening his own knowledge and 
acquiring new skills have always 
been priorities for him. 

Gill employs innovative ap- 
proaches to classroom and cur- 
riculum, exemplified by his recent 
courses in Poe and no n- traditional 
literary forms. He is a believer in 
collaborative learning — not only as 
it applies to students working 
together, but also to inter- 
disciplinary cooperation as the 
Writing-Across-the-Curricuium ap- 
proach illustrates. Gill also is an ad- 
vocate of new educational 
technology, like Elon's closed-circuit 
TV system and computer labs. 

"The challenge in teaching," Gill 
notes, "is to make students active 
rather than passive. One of my 
goals is to get students to pace 
themselves, set their own learning 
goals and pursue them." 



Centennial Committee at Work 



Elon's Centennial will be celebrated 
during the 1988-89 academic year, 
and plans are already well under 
way. A special committee has been 
formed with representative member- 
ship from the town of Elon College 
and the United Church of Christ 
as well as college trustees, administra- 
tion, faculty, students and alumni. 

Founders Day in March 1989 will 
mark the height of the celebration. 
Proposals for other Centennial ac- 
tivities include special worship ser- 
vices in the fall and spring, perfor- 
mances in fine arts, and events 



designed for joint town and college 
participation. 

In an effort to plan a commemor- 
ative publication, the college is ask- 
ing for interesting original photo- 
graphs or snapshots from Elon's 
history— early or recent. If you have 
any photographs you are willing to 
lend or donate to the college ar- 
chives, please contact Nan Perkins, 
Director of Publications and Public 
Information, Campus Box 2116,

Fulbright Scholar Angyal 
Returns from Hungary 



By Susan Klopman 

Dr. Andreiv Angyal, associate pro- 
fessor of English, was awarded a 
Fulbright Senior Lectureship in 
American literature for a six-month 
term at Louis Kossuth University in 
Debrecen, Hungary. His term began in 
January and ended just recently. 
Angyal, who came to Elon in 1976, is 
the first professor in Elon's history to 
be awarded a Fulbright Senior 
L^ccureshif). EdiWr's note 

Consumers of fried foods, devotees 
of chic fashion, lovers of books and 
flowers, and a people quietly pro- 
American— meet the Hungarians. 
Not what you expected? Even 
though Dr. Andrew J. Angyal had 
prepared extensively for his months 
as a Fulbright lecturer at Louis 
Kossuth University in Debrecen, 
Hungary, he met the unexpected 
too — finding himself in a Soviet- 
dominated country when the U.S. 
bombed Libya or within possible 
range of nuclear fallout after the 
Chernobyl disaster. 

"Like most Europeans, the Hungar- 
ian people were originally disap- 
proving, then generally very quiet 
about the American bombing of 
Libya," Angyal said. He described 
the days following the bombing as 
a week of almost palpable tension 
as Hungarians feared their country 
would serve as the passageway to 
Europe for retaliating terrorists. 

As for the Chernobyl explosion, 
"the Hungarians knew no more 
than the rest of the world," he said. 
"The lack of information really 
highlights the inadequacies of the 
Soviet system." It was the prevailing 
winds, not government's protection 
plan, that saved Hungary from 



greater exposure to the fallout. 

Officially, Hungarians know only 
what the government-controlled 
media are allowed to present. Angyal 
found the BBC and Voice of Amer- 
ica radio broadcasts to \Se his vital 
links to the free world. Interesting- 
ly, Anygal did believe that the of- 
ficial press conveyed fair, impartial 
news of the Challenger disaster. 
"There was universal sympathy for 
the loss," he noted, and nationality 
ceased to be a distinction during a 
public memorial service sponsored 
by the U.S. Embassy and allowed 
by the Hungarian government. • 

No doubt these memories will 
stand as biographic bench marks in 
Angyal's life; yet it is probably the 
abundance of typical days that he 
will reference most often. Teaching 
three American literature courses at 
Debrecen, lecturing at other univer- 
sities, sightseeing and visiting rela- 
tives, opening the Martin Luther 
King exhibit— these were events fill- 
ing the majority of his days. 

His classes at Debrecen were 
generally small— 10 to 15 students 
each, 90 percent of whom were 
women. The university itself has 
approximately 2,500 undergraduates. 
Admission is selective, determined 
by rigorous state examinations so 
that only the top ten percent of the 
population can attend the free 
university. More examinations 
monitor the student's progress dur- 
ing the four years. There is a fifth 
or postgraduate year during which 
a student writes a master's thesis. 
Then a degree is conferred. 

"The students are bright, well- 
prepared and highly motivated,"

Second Grad 
Takes State 
CPA Honors 

Elmer Edmonds '72 achieved the 
highest score of anyone taking the 
CPA exam in November 1985 in 
the state of Georgia. With that 
distinction he joins Greensboro's 
Elizabeth Schumacher '74, who 
made the highest score in North 
Carolina during the same 
November exam. (For details of 
Schumacher's achievement, see the 
May issue of The Magazine of Eton.) 
For his accomplishment. Edmunds 
received the Gold Key Award from 
the Georgia Society of CPA's and 
the Watts Sells Award for scoring 
among the top 125 in the nation. 

Elmer Edmonds was a unique 
success story at Elon even before 
earning this distinction. He had 
been out of high school for nearly 
20 years when he entered Elon in 
1966. He was only a part-time stu- 
dent because he was employed full 
time with Burlington Industries. 
However, in 1972 he was graduated 

Alberta B. 
Harrell '18 
Dies in May 

Mrs. Alberta Boone Harrell '18 of 
Durham, N.C., died on May 18. 
She was the widow of Dr. Stanley 
C. Harrell, pastor of Durham Con- 
gregational Church for 33 years 
and a member of the Elon Board 
of Trustees. 

Mrs. Harrell's family has been an 
important part of Elon's history 
since the turn of the century. Her 
father was Dr. Waldo H. Boone, a 
graduate in the Class of 1894 and a 
member of the Board of Trustees 
from 1915 until 1953, serving as 
chairman from 1935 until 1953. Her 
brother was Dr. Waldo H. Boone, a 




summa cum laude with a perfect 
4.0 average in accounting. Edmonds 
just earned his MBA at Mercer 
University this year while being 
employed full time with the Dyka 
Company in Macon, Georgia. He 
and his wife, Valerie, have two 
children: a son, Russ, of Robbins, 
Georgia, and a daughter, Karen 
Carlson of Raleigh. They also have 
another "first" besides the out- 
standing CPA score— their first 
grandson, Christopher, born to 
Russ and his wife on June 5. 

Durham physician who also served 
on the Board f^om 1958 until 1977. 
In 1978 he was named an honorary 
trustee for life, ex officio. Mrs. Har- 
rell's nephew C. Stanley Boone '66, 
son of Waldo W. Boone Jr., was the 
director of admissions at Elon from 
1966-1975. 

Mrs. Harrell was a member and 
former regent of the General Davis 
Chapter ot the Daughters of the 
American Revolution. Her dedica- 
tion to community organizations 
was evident in her work as chair- 
man of the Heart Fund. 

Several years ago Mrs. Harrell 
gave her Durham home to the col- 
lege while retaining life estate rights 
to the propierty. 

She is survived by a daughter, 
Ms. Mary Ann Harrell of Bethesda, 
Maryland. 



Senior Class Gift Establishes 
Endowment Fund 



A definite image is evoked when 
"senior class gift" is mentioned: it is 
the image of a small plaque affixed 
to a tree or bench on campus, 
signifying the generous spirit of a 
graduating class of the past. At 
Elon, senior class gifts have largely 
fit into that mold, the most 
noteworthy being the long-standing 
Senior Oak. 

The Class of 1986 wanted to 
break out of that traditional mold 
and give Elon something different. 
To do that they came up with the 
idea of the 1986 Senior Class Pride 
Campaign. At two meetings early 
in the spring, the class decided to 
print and sell "Class of 1986" T- 
shirts. Proceeds would go to the 
Annual Fund. 

Thanks to the generosity of an 
anonymous trustee and a matching 
gift from the Student Government 
Association, the class was also able 
to establish an endowment fund. 
With an initial total of $2900. the 
fund should grow to nearly $40,000 

Staley P. 
Gordon *34 
Dies 

Staley P. Gordon of Burlington died 
May 20 after several months of fail- 
ing health. A 1934 graduate of 
Elon, Gordon was retired vice presi- 
dent and secretary of Tower 
Hosiery Mills and former president 
of Shadowbrook Hosiery Mill. He 
served for some time as the chair- 
man of the Board of Directors for 
Community Federal Savings and 
Loan Association, was a former 
director of the National Hosiery 
Association, and a past president of 
the American Business Club. He 
was also a former director of 
Alamance Country Club and an 



in 25 years and to almost $500,000 
in 50 years. The money has been 
invested by the college, with in- 
terest accruing to the fund. At a 
future time, the class will recom- 
mend a particular use. 

According to Senior Class Presi- 
dent Ray Covington, the project 
was successful in more ways than 
one. "We had great participation 
and will be able to make a very im- 
pressive gift to Elon," he said. 
"More than that though, the pro- 
ject brought the class together and 
gave us a sense of closeness we 
never had before." A total of more 
than 150 seniors, as well as 25 
faculty and staff members, con- 
tributed to the campaign. 

The Senior Class Pride Campaign 
was coordinated by Bob Moser '86, 
administrative assistant for 
development. 



elder of the First Presbyterian 
Church of Burlington. He was in- 
strumental in establishing and fund- 
ing a scholarship in memory of 
his late daughter, Nancy Gordon 
Sheffield. His family has requested 
that memorials be sent to this 
scholarship fund. Gordon is surviv- 
ed by his wife, Hallie Wayne Hor- 
naday Gordon and by his daughter, 
Mrs. R.C. Lewis Jr. Gordon was the 
brother of Clyde W. Gordon, a 
long-time trustee of the college who 
died on May 4. 1986.

Edith McCauley Womack 55 




By Betty Greene 



Nothing canmatch the excitement of something new. ~EMW 




On the morn- 
ing the 1985 
Nobel laureates 
were announced. 
Edith McCauley 
Womack was one 
of the first to 
arrive at the Molecular Genetics 
Department of the University of 
Texas Health Science Center in 
Dallas. 

"1 got to work as usual around 
6:30 a.m. to avoid the terrible 
North Dallas rush hour," recalls 
Womack, a research associate in the 
department. 

"As I walked down the hall, 1 
heard phones ringing in the doc- 
tors' offices. I could only wonder 
what was happening, since their 
doors were locked. Then some of 
my co-workers arrived and told me 
that the news had just come over 
the radio." 

The news was as big as news can 
get in medical research. Womack's 
research team leaders, Dr. Joseph 
Goldstein and Dr. Michael Brown, 
had been selected to receive the 
Nobel Prize in Medicine. 

"Soon the department was buzz- 
ing with congratulations— phone 
calls came in from Good Morning 
America, Evening Netcs, and all over 
the world," Womack continues. 
"The doctors were in Boston for a 
conference, but they flew home im- 
mediately. They are publicity shy 
and prefer to be on the job, so 
they refused interviews. But we 
celebrated and were interviewed by 
reporters for days. John (my hus- 
band) rushed home that first day to 
get everything on tape. A Danish 
film crew and a British film crew 
taped a documentary of all of us at 
work." 

Brown and Goldstein were award- 
ed the Nobel for their research into 
the metabolism of cholesterol. 
Studying patients with a rare, often 
fatal inherited disorder, FH (familial 
hypercholesterolemia). Brown, 
Goldstein, and their research team 
located the gene defect responsible 
for FH. Their discoveries, since 



1972, unraveled and explained the 
mechanism by which cells remove 
cholesterol "packages" from the 
bloodstream and process the 
"package" contents inside the cell. 
Cholesterol, packaged in a low den- 
sity lipoprotein molecule (LDL), cir- 
culates through the bloodstream 
and is removed by liver cells. Since 
FH patients have faulty mechanisms 
for removing LDL molecules, the 
patients carry dangerous excesses of; 
cholesterol in their bloodstreams. 

Acclaim has come to Drs. Brown 
and Goldstein from medical and 
scientific colleagues ail over the 
world, not only because their work 
opens doors to effective treatments 
for FH patients, but also because 
the research promises prevention 
and treatment breakthroughs for 
the 30 to 50 million Americans 
who suffer from diet-related harden- 
ing of the arteries. 

Womack played a key support 
role in the Nobel-honored research. 
As research associate, her duties in- 
clude supervising the tissue culture 
laboratory where she and her co- 
workers cultured and maintained 
the special cells from FH patients as 
well as the animal cells used by 
Brown and Goldstein in their 
cholesterol research. Womack con- 
ducted preliminary screening ex- 
periments and provided critical data 
and assistance for the research 
directors. 

"Most of the research work re- 
quired tissue culture in some part 
so 1 had a hand in most projects. 
Dr. Goldstein works closely with 
me and considers this lab the core 
of his research," Womack says. 

Along with a team of fifty or 
more faculty members, post- 
doctorate interns, and technical 
personnel, Womack now continues 
the cholesterol-related research and 
participates in new projects. 

She and her co-workers handle 
skin biopsies from FH patients from 
all over the world. They "plant" 
firagile cell cultures in petri dishes 
or roller bottles under protective 
biohazard hoods. Sterile conditions 
are vital. Contamination by yeasts, 



molds, and bacteria must be 
prevented, 

Womack performs screening ex- 
periments to determine when a pa- 
tient has the defective FH gene. 
She then locates the abnormal link 
in the genetic chain, transfers 
genetic material from one cell 
culture to another, and clones cells. 
Her tasks require uniformity and 
precision. The project may, in the 
future, contribute to gene 
transplants and to cures for FH and 
other inherited diseases. 

Little did Womack dream, when 
she left Eion in the fifties, that her 
life and her work would take her 
close to anything as significant and 
prestigious as the Nobel Priie. 

She reflects about Dr. Paul Red- 
dish (now retired) who made each 
of his Elon biology students feci 
like a very special person. She 
remembers being the only student 
to show up on time one day for 
Dr. Earl Danieley's class. "He was a 
stickler for starting on time and 
proceeded to lecture me alone while 
the others trickled in. To this day, I 
remember his topic — Cesium — and 
how frightened I was that he would 
ask me questions." 

Dr. Danieiey, now the Thomas E. 
Powell, Jr. Professor of Chemistry at 
Elon, recalls Edith McCauley — a 
student double-majoring in 
chemistry and biology — as "a fine, 
quiet person." 

Womack says her "quiet" life after 
leaving Elon changed to a life of 
adventure when she moved with 
her family from South Carolina to 
Taipei. Her husband, John, (also an 
Elon grad) supervised the building 
of a DuPont plant and trained the 
Chinese employees. Womack taught 
science in the Taipei American 
School — the school attended by her 
son and daughter. While based in 
Taipei, Womack traveled around the 
world four times with her family, 
visiting 30 countries in Europe and 
Asia. She values the experience 
with people of other cultures, 
especially now that her colleagues 
at the university include people 
from Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, 



Spain, Germany, and Austria. 

In 1980 Womack and her family 
moved to Piano, a northern suburb 
of Dallas. 

"We love the Dallas area," she 
says. "It's dynamic, progressive, and 
full of opportunities. We have an 
abundance of sunshine, warm 
weather, and heavy traffic!" 

Three months after arriving in 
Dallas, Womack went to work for 
Drs. Goldstein and Brown at the 
University of Texas Health Science 
Center. Her previous work as a 
registered medical technologist and 
a science teacher helped her get the 
laboratory position. Changing to 
research work was an important 
step. 

Womack believes opportunities in 
science today are abundant. "If I 
had gone into research earlier, I 
would definitely have pursued a 
Ph.D. Science is a wide open field 
for women today. Funds arc 
available for graduate degrees and 
so are jobs. You just have to seek 
them out. Molecular genetics and 
biotechnology are the hot areas 
now. 

"Anyone who goes into science 
must be prepared to work hard," 
she continues. "Our post-doctorates 
work 6-7 days a week, 10 or more 
hours a day. I work many holidays 
and Sundays and put in many 
50-hour weeks." 

But when Womack talks about a 
six-year-old patient, "Stormy," 
treated successfully with heart-liver 
transplants and drugs as a result of 
her team's research, it is clear that 
her workdays are worth starting 
early and ending late. 

"This is one job I truly look for- 
ward to each day," she says with 
deep feeling. "Nothing can match 
the excitement of uncovering 
something new." 

"I may not be great, nor have I 
done anything great," she adds, 
"but I know I am part of 
something great."

JAZZMAN 

Elon's Soundest 
Ambassador Carries 
A New Tune 



Reprinted ujith permission of The Daily Times-News. 
6 The Magazine of Elon August, 1986 



By Doug Norwood '84 

Dr. Jack White wouldn't last two 
minutes on '"JVhat's My Line." 
"jVith a little triangle of white beard 
on his chin and sentences punc- 
tuated by "man" and "dig it," he 
could only be a jazz man. 

In the past 23 years. White, a 
trumpet playet with a voice like a 
bass drum, has developed and 
directed Elon College's marching 
band, the Showband of the 
Carolinas, the Concert Band and 
the Emanons Jazz Ensemble. 

When he came to Elon in 1962, 
White found a marching band with 
eight members who had practically 
no equipment or instruments. They 
didn't have a band room to practice 
in. He worked long and hard to 
build the marching band and then 
the Emanons, who have been the 
school's ambassadors up and down 
the Eastern Seaboard and in 
Europe. 
Now. White says he's tired. 
His health is not what it used to 
be and as he's gotten older. White 
says, "I've learned how to do the 
horn without killing myself." So, at 
age 59, he's going to strike out on 
his own as a one-man show billed 
"Dr J., Easy Listening Jazz." 

White, who has played regularly 
in clubs here and in Florida, says 
he knows the change will not be 
easy. "I'm not frightened by retire- 
ment, I'm terrified," he says. 

And he will leave behind some 
gratifying years of teaching. "Of 
those original eight band members, 
three are still playing professionally; 
that's a long time," White says with 
a proud smile, then rattles off their 
names and where they're playing. 
He had successfully built award- 
winning bands at high schools in 
Cary and WytheviUe, Va., before 
coming to Elon. He came here 
ready to do whatever was necessary 
to keep his winning streak alive. 

He joined Elon's staff in the sum- 
mer of '62 and increased the eight 
band members to 48 by the time 
football season started. After the 
season, he organized the Emanons. 
the pride and joy of his Elon years. 
"That was a great band." he says 
of the original Emanons. "hell, 
those kids could blow." 

The ungainly name is actually 
"No Name" spelled backwards; it 
was the title of a song by Dizzy 
Gillespie. 

Twenty-three years later, White 
says, "It's a strange thing, how time 
moves on, but. man. these kids 
nevei change." 

"It was a really big deal back 
then. The kids were more into bon- 




fires and the 'rah-rah' type thing— 
you know, dances with crepe 
paper," he says. "But I think today's 
kids are just as great." 

He believes his students today 
can be better musicians because 
their educational opportunities are 
greater 

White says his formula for success 
has few ingredients. 

He thinks his students like his 
"hard-but-fair" approach to 
teaching. "They really do pull for 
me," he says. "The kids do real 
good. 

"I'm a great believer in yelling." 
he says. "I talk loud and push 
hard." 

White says, "I can dig rock if it's 
done tight." Rock 'n roll can only 
be done right, he says, when the 
musician is firmly grounded in the 
basics of jazz. 

"Remember, Picasso painted 
regular stuff before he started 
cubism," he says. 

When the Emanons perform for 
young audiences in high schools, 
they play a mbt of old and new 
music. White says. 

"We'll do your top 40 and then 
sneak in some jazz," he says, "We'll 
do 'Emeigency' by Kool &. the 
Gang and then slip in 'Blue Inva- 
sion,' and the kids leally dig it. 'We 
get a standing ovation evety time." 
But when push comes to shove. 
White says his true love is still jazz. 
He'd like to play "elevator music" as 
he calls it, for a lounge full of 
customets 35 and over—the kind of 
place you could take a chick for 
dinner or a drink" and still be able 
to talk over the music. 

When White does his one-man 
show, he uses an elaborate system 
of tapes for accompaniment while 
he sings and plays songs like "Star 
Dust" and "Ikjdy and Soul" on the 
trumpet or flugelhorn. 

After he gives up teaching in 
June, he will move to Beaufort with 
his wife. Jo Ann. 

Just as he had done for 23 years 
with Elon's bands. White hopes to 
tiavel far and wide to further the 
cause of jazz.

Fightin' Christian Forecast 



Elon College head football coach 
Macky Garden will return a veteran 
offensive line when the 1986 cam- 
paign begins, and with the most 
talented athletes ever asembled, the 
Fightin' Christians look to return 
to the national playoffs. 

"This year's team will have more 
athletic ablility than any other in 
my ten years of coaching here," 
Garden said. "We have given up 
some size in the defensive line and 
other areas, but we feel we'll be 
quicker and have more natural 
ability. Our offensive line will also 
have a chance to be the best ever. 
All five projected starters were at 
least part-time starters or played 
more than half of each game." 

Elon does indeed have one of the 
South Atlantic Conference's best 
returning offensive lines. The ex- 
pected starters average 6'1", 250 lbs. 
across. They will be led by AU- 
American candidate Alphonso 
Morrison. Morrison, 6'0" 250 lb. 
senior from Hamlet, N.G., was 
selected first team All-District and 
honorable mention All-America in 
1985. Morrison will be left guard. 
Also on the left at tackle is Rocky 
River, Ohio native Tony DiPietro. 
DiPietro, 6'0" 270 lb. sophomore, 
was selected honorable mention 
All-District at right guard last year 
before switching positions. 

Also on the front line will be 
Wilson's Dave Emery, 6T' 250 lb. 
sophomore, at right guard and 
massive Ricky Sigmon at right 
tackle. Sigmon, one of the premier 
offensive linemen in the league, tips 
the scales at 315 while standing 



6'4". He comes from Catawba, NG. 
At center is sophomore Kevin 
Campbell, 6'0" 235 lb., from 
Southern Pines, N.C. 

In the perimeter positions. 
Garden will look to Richie Lines, 
5'10" senior from Burlington, and 
Jay Simmons, 6'2" junior from 
Highland. Ind. 

Chuck Ward will be at tight end. 
Ward, a native of Roanoke Rapids, 
N.G., is a junior, standing 6'5" and 
weighing 235 lb. He averaged 12,4 
ypc last year with one touchdown- 

In the backfield, only one starter 
returns, and that in the form of 
Orange, Maryland native Mike 
O'Lari. His running mate will be 
Laurinburg, N.C, sophomore 
Dwayne Clark. 5'9" 200 lb. 

At quarterback will be senior 
Craig Taylor, 5']I" 180 lb. from 
Boone. Taylor has not played much 
due to injuries in his career. Garden 
does feel he will be a very capable 
leader. 

On defense. Garden will look to 
a pair of All-America candidates in 
outside linebacker Tony Settles and 
inside linebacker Russell Evans. Set- 
tles, 6'3" 215 lb. senior from Laurin- 
burg, was accorded All-District and 
All-SAG-8 a year ago as well as 
honorable mention All-America. 
Evans, 6'3" 205 lb. senior from 
Cheraw, SG., was honorable men- 
tion All-District. 

Joining Settles on the outside will 
be Ronnie Purcell, 6'0" 205 lb. 
sophomore from Carthage, N.C. On 
the inside will be senior Tim 
Farmer, 6'0" 215 lb. from 
Midlothian, Va. 



On the defensive line will be 
junior Craig Castor, 6'2" 260 lb. 
from Lexington, Maryland; senior 
noseguard Steve Pickett, 5*11" 240 
lb. from Ottumwa, Iowa; and 
sophomore John Bradsher, 6'4" 235 
lb. from Hillsborough, N.C. 

In the secondary will be 
sophomore cornerback Willie 
Williams, 5'9" 185 lb. from Clinton, 
and sophomore Jeff Slade, 6'0" 190 
lb. from Conway, S.C. At the 
safeties will be junior Tim Ferrell, 
5'10" 200 lb. from Danville, Va., 
and Tim Bines, 5'9" 170 lb. junior 
from Bennettsville, S.C. 

Garden said the defense may be 
apt to give up more yards this 
season but will be able to hold on 
in key situations. "I think our 
overall athletic talent should enable 
us to improve on recovering more 
fumbles and making a few more in- 
terceptions. The guys should be 
able to have more people to the 
ball quicker. This is an area we 
must improve on and 1 feel sure we 
will." 

The kicking game has been 
somewhat suspect lately but Garden 
says 1986 will be better. Sophomore 
Paul Mullen will return to do the 
placekicking chores and posssibly 
kick-off. Unless a freshman steps 
forward, Mullen would also see du- 
ty as a punter. Mullen is 5'10", 160 
lb. from Myrtle Beach, S.C. 

"We're hoping the defense will be 
able to make the big play. As for 
the conference race, we feel we 
have as good a chance as anyone 
and better than some others. We 
really won't know until we line up 
and get things started." 



The 1986 Elon Baseball Nine: 
The Classiest Act in Town 



By Lee Patterson 

The following article is reprinted 
with permission of the Burlington 
(N.C.) Times-News. It appeared in 
mid-May while the Elon baseball 
team was away at the NAIA Region 
7 tournament in Bluefield, W. Va. 
Althxjugh Elon was eliminated from 
the tourrmment, they were certainly 
clear winners in the eyes of columnist 
Lee Patterson and others. 

The game of baseball, for the 
most part, is not one of those 
sports we label a gentleman's game. 

We don't sit in the stands clap- 
ping our hands in a polite way or 
become silent when a batter ap- 
proaches the plate. 

Instead, as baseball fans, as 
baseball players, we hoot and 
holler, complain aloud to the um- 
pires and sling semi-unkind words 
to the opposition. 

And that's the way the game 
should be. 



But, at the same time, there 
should be a limit to it all. 

When teams and their fans 
decide to use filthy language, make 
obscene gestures toward the op- 
ponents and attempt to promote 
fighting on the playing field, 
baseball no longer is a sport. 

During the latter part of this 
week, four teams met for the NAIA 
Region 7 baseball tournament in 
Bluefield, W. Va. All four clubs cer- 
tainly rated high on athletic skill, 
but in the manners department 
three failed miserably. 

One of the participating teams, 
however, showed class and maturity 
upon winning and upon losing. 

Never did unkind words or 
gestures spill from the team's 
dugout. Never were there any at- 
tempts to intimidate umpires. 

Never. 

Not on and not off the field. 

Such mature and classy actions 



don't come overnight either. 

The ballclub displayed this type 
behavior throughout the season as 
it won 35 games and lost but 14. 

Part of the credit certainly should 
go to the coach. He is the one 
recruiting players from families 
made of good people and he con- 
tinues to teach the positives of 
good sportsmanship. 

Maybe that is why, in only two 
years, the coach owns a winning 
mark of nearly 80 percent. And 
maybe that is why he has led his 
team to more victories than any 
other before him. 

It certainly must help. 

But more importantly, winning in 
a classy way builds a positive image 
for a program. 

And an image which can even 
drift deep into the Blue Ridge 
Mountains.

Elon Sets the Standards and Stays On Top 



By Nan Perkins and Susan Klopman 



As Elon nears the opening of its 
98th academic year, the college is 
once again experiencing its best 
recruiting year in memory. Applica- 
tions are up 25 percent over last 
year, and the largest and best 
prepared freshman class in Elon 
history is expected to enroll during 
Labor Day weekend. The SAT 
average for the new students is 40 
points higher than last year. 

The flux of well-qualified ap- 
plicants has generated some prob- 
lems. Campus housing— which can 
accommodate approximately 
1700— has been full since early May, 
with only a few exceptions. In early 
June lack of available classroom 
space forced Admissions to stop ac- 
cepting transfers and to raise again 
the academic standards for admit- 
ting freshmen commuters. 

"We are having to turn away 
students we would really like to ac- 
cept," says Dean of Admissions and 
Financial Planning Joanne Soliday. 
"We just don't have the room." 

Recently a special academic pro- 
gram was created to accommodate 
some of the many transfer students 
who traditionally apply to Elon 
during the summer months. A 
block of afternoon courses was add- 
ed and well qualified commuting 
transfer students are being accepted 
with the provision that they take 
all their courses after 3:00 p.m. 
This alternative has been dubbed 
the "four-day program," reflecting 
the fact that afternoon and evening 
classes are taught only Monday 
through Thursday. The program 
allows the college to teach courses 
during the afternoon hours when 
classrooms are traditionally not in 
use. 

The Elon recruiting success is 
especially remarkable in light of the 
fact that the college continues 
steadily to upgrade admissions stan- 



dards. In a speech to the faculty 
two years ago, which was reported 
in the media, President Fred Young 
announced a policy of gradually 
raising the requirements for admis- 
sions as Elon headed for its 
Centennial year. 

"It is our goal that by the 
Centennial year Elon will be at the 
top among private colleges in this 
region with missions similar to 
ours," said Young at the time. Since 
then applications have increased 40 
percent and the SAT average for 
entering students has risen over 60 
points. 

College officials expect a total 
enrollment of approximately 3100 
for the 1986-87 academic year, up 
from 2929 last year. Ten new full- 
time faculty positions have been 
created. Enrollment at Elon has in- 
creased every year for the last nine. 
The college has added housing for 
over 600 students in recent years. 

The Reason for Success 

One question, of course, is why. 
When so many private colleges are 
faced with declining enrollments 
and even possible extinction, how 
is Elon able to recruit an overflow 
of well-qualified students? 

According to Soliday, the answer 
is a strong program across the 
board. "A good recruiting program 
is a good institutional program," 
says Soliday. "Faculty are an 
especially important key, and Elon 
is noted for having a strong and 
caring teaching staff." In a recent 
survey 97 percent of the graduating 
seniors said, on an open-ended 
question, that the relationship that 
they formed with faculty was one 
of the things they liked best about 
Elon. 

In the same survey 95 percent of 
the seniors expressed overall satis- 



faction with their years at Elon. 
"And satisfied students are our best 
recruiters," Soliday points out. "An 
excellent facility and good adminis- 
trative leadership are other factors 
in Elon's ability to attract good 
students. We have clearly defined 
institutional goals identifying the 
students that Elon seeks to serve," 
she says. "We know who we are 
and we know where we're going. 

"And when they see this campus 
and meet students and faculty, 
they're sold," she continues. " 'This 
is just what I thought a college 
ought to be like,' is a comment we 
often hear." 

At the same time a great deal of 
credit must be given to the Elon 
admissions staff. The college's de- 
partment of admissions and finan- 
cial aid is generally recognized as 
one of the most effective and pro- 
gressive among similar institutions 
—true pioneers in the field of col- 
lege marketing and recruitment. 

The current success of the Elon 
admissions program has its roots in 
the direction of Mrs. Marydell 
Bright, who headed the department 
for more than 10 years before retir- 
ing in 1984. It has gained steam 
under the current dean, Joanne 
Soliday, who heads a staff of highly 
trained professionals and spearheads 
a four-state recruiting effort that 
goes on 12 months a year, six 
to seven days a week, and up to 16 
hours a day. In today's highly com- 
petitive market, recruiting cannot 
be a haphazard pursuit. Excellent 
planning, computerization of 
records, focus on the individual, 
and meticulous attention to detail 
are the cornerstones of the 
program. 

From Inquiry to Enrollment 

The recruiting process officially 
begins approximately 18 months 



before a student would enroll. From 
the Search program of the Scholas- 
tic Aptitude Testing Service, the 
Office of Admissions purchases 
thousands of names of prospective 
students who fall within the col- 
lege's SAT range and geographical 
areas. Through this and other 
sources, admissions accumulates the 
names of approximately 28,000 
potential applicants. Publications 
introducing Elon are mailed to 
these people and others whose 
names have been submitted by 
alumni and friends. In recent years, 
Elon has added a staff which pro- 
duces its own admissions publica- 
tions and responses from these 
mailings have since then risen 
significantly. From the initial Search 
mailing Elon now receives a 
remarkable 17 percent response. 

The real secret to the Elon admis- 
sions program, however, is not bas- 
ed on mail-order information. "Our 
philosophy is to meet the in- 
dividual, to talk to every person 
who shows an interest in Elon," 
Soliday explains. This ambitious, 
and obviously successful approach 
involves thousands of man-hours 
and miles as Soliday and six full- 
time traveling admissions counselors 
(who are all Elon graduates) visit 
high schools in all four states, par- 
ticipate in College Day programs 
and host "Hospitality Nights" in 
major cities throughout the area. 

Campus visitation is one of the 
best recruiting tools. "There is no 
substitute for a visit to Eton," Soli- 
day notes. "Prospective applicants 
meet the faculty, talk to students 
and see our beautiful campus. They 
discover for themselves what 
outstanding people and excellent 
facilties Elon offers." 

It is no small task to host a large 
number of prospective students and

for this Arlington, Virginia, resi- 
dent? "I learned about Elon from 
my guidance counselor (at 
Wakefield High School). 1 liked 
what I heard, so I came for the 
visitation day last fall." 

Denese went on to describe her 
initial reponse to Elon as "falling in 
love." However, not one to leave a 
thought trapped by a cliche, she 
elaborated: "The atmosphere is per- 
sonal and friendly, and the campus 
is the perfect size. It's really 
beautiftil." Denese added that she's 
ready for a change from the look 
and feel of the greater Washington, 



D.C. area. 

She plans to major in mass com- 
munication as the first step in her 
pursuit of a career as a photojour- 
nalist. Elon's communications 
department impressed her. Elon is 
becoming well-known for its state- 
of-the-art equipment and the fact 
that students get lots of hands-on 
experience. She also talked to Dr. 
Russell Gill, chairman of the 
Department of Literature, 
Languages and Communications, 
and to Ray Johnson, assistant pro- 
fessor of communications.

their parents. However, with Ad- 
missions' characteristic attention to 
detail, each participant is hosted 
personally — from having the car 
door opened upon arrival to being 
introduced to faculty and staff. For 
example, inste;pd of holding a large 
assembly, visitors are split into 
small groups of about 17 people 
with a student admissions 
counselor for each group. With 
such a small group, each individual 
has the opportunity not only to 
ask questions, but also to get a per- 
sonal answer. 

Questions about the cost of a 
college education are met on a per- 
sona! basis too. Even the name— 
the Office of Financial Planning— 
indicates that Elon's approach to 
financing the cost of a college 
education is different. Each appli- 
cant is offered the opportunity for 
an individual financial planning in- 
terview. Because of the many 
scholarships and financial aid pro- 
grams at Elon, counselors can tailor 
financial planning to meet the stu- 
dent's particular circumstances. 

By spring of a student's senior 
year, the field of 28,000 names has 
become 3,000 potential applicants. 
Elon's admissions counselors revisit 
each high school in all four states 
and make one more personal con- 
tact as decisions about a college 
choice are being made. By 
summer— early June this year— 1,000 
of those applicants will have been 
notified that they are members of 
the incoming freshman class. The 
admissions process is over for the 
new students. But for the college it 
has already begun again.

It is a typical high school group. 
The students— all seniors— are laid 
back in their chairs, feet propped 
everywhere. Although they have 
just heard a glowing introduction of 
the speaker, a young woman there 
to talk about adjusting to college 
life, they are obviously reserving 
judgment, 

"Pretend with me that it is 
August 15 and you're ready to leave 
for college," she begins, her hands 
betraying her enthusiasm. "The 
shopping is done, the car is packed 
and you've said goodbye to your 
friends. 

"Now complete this sentence: 
'But I'm still very worried about 



Interest flickers. A few backs 
straightened. Hands begin to go up. 
Another fast-paced presentation of 
Joanne Soliday's workshop, "How 
to Survive or Not Survive in Col- 
lege," is launched. 

The fears expressed by the 
students are always the same — 
getting along with a nDommate, 
dealing with professors, leaving 
one's friends, hating the food, 
flunking out. The students' atten- 
tion is captured and held even past 
the 50 minutes usually allotted for 
the presentation. 

Soliday, Elon's dean of admissions 
and financial planning, developed 
the "How to Survive" workshop in 
1983 as a service for college-bound 
seniors. Since then, she has 
delivered it over 500 times to more 
than 9,000 students. 

The workshop focuses on the 
academic and social adjustments 
students will be faced with in col- 
lege. Academically, Soliday tries to 
prepare them for differences in col' 
lege class hours, grading practices, 
and the shift in the burden of 
learning from teacher to student. 

"You're now in class 30 hours a 
week," she explains. "In college, 
you'll be in class only about 15 
hours a week. But to make C's, 
most of you will need to study 
about one hour outside of class for 



every hour you're in class, lb make 
A's and B's— two hours of study for 
every one in class. 

"Make a simple chart to schedule 
your study time in college, even if 
you have to hide in the closet or 
bathroom to do it," Soliday advises, 
showing on a board how a chart 
can be made with X's for class time 
and O's for study But be flexible, 
she adds. 

"When your roommate comes 
and says 'Come on, we're all going 
down to Pi2za Hut," go ahead and 
break the schedule. But reschedule 
that study time for later in the 
week. Don't let it pile up." 

"You're SMART enough to han- 
dle the college workload," she em- 
phasizes. "But you also have to be 
STRONG enough'— a point she 
returns to again and again. 

Socially, Soliday's presentation 
focuses on the danger of unreahstic 
expectations often fostered by 
parents and other adults and the 
problem of dealing with additional 
freedom college affords. 

"How many times have you 
heard, 'You're going to make many 
new friends?' " she asks. Heads nod 
in recognition. 

"But it's taken you 17 years to 
make the two or three or maybe 
one really good friend you have 
now. You're not going to make new 
close friends in two weeks," she 
warns. "Expect some loneliness at 
first." 

Dealing with drugs, alcohol and 
the almost unlimited social freedom 
of college life is another topic. 
"What are you going to do when 
your' roommate brings his girlfriend 
in to spend the night?" she asks 
candidly. 

Again, she advises, you've got to 
be strong. "Someone is setting your 
limits for you now, but in college 
you've got to set your own." You've 
got to know what you value, what 
you like and don't like. And you've 
got to communicate your feelings to 
those around you. 

"If you don't know who you 
are when you go to college," she 
states, "you could be someone else

in a matter of weeks." 

Peppered with humorous accounts 
of Soliday's experiences as the 
mother of a college-age daughter, as 
a former associate dean of students 
at Elon and as a dean of admis- 
sions, the animated presentation 
has an authenticity that is im- 
mediately recognized by high school 
seniors. Students are totally enaged 
throughout the 50-minute presenta- 
tion, and many stay to ask ques- 
tions afterward. 

Because of the great demand for 
the workshop, Soliday has recently 
begun to train other college admis- 
sions counselors and high school 
guidance counselors to present the 
information on their own. She has 
delivered the workshop at 
numerous counselors conventions, 
at the 1985 Regional College Board 
Assembly in Atlanta and at the 
National Convention of College 
Admissions Counselors in 1985 in 
Cincinnati. This summer, she is 
helping to train 50 college admis- 
sions counselors from throughout 
the Carolinas to become certified 
workshop presentors, as part of a 
special project of the Carolinas 
Association of College Registrars 
and Admissions Counselors. 

A videotape of the presentation is 
also available and is being used ex- 
tensively. Soliday has also recently 
developed a similar workshop 
designed for the parents of college- 
bound seniors. It, too, is growing in 
popularity. 



First Sight 



meet her career needs was impor- 
tant, but perhaps what made the 
day really special is the friendship 
that began between Denese and her 
student tour guide Lisa Milanak. 
Lisa invited Denese back again to 
spend several weekends during the 
fall. She came, and it didn't take 
long for Elon to start feeling like 
Denese's college too. 

Denese also applied to Virginia 
Tech and James Madison College. 
Her solid academic background, in- 
cluding various academic awards, 
made her a very acceptable appli- 
cant at those institutions. There 



is also some family history with 
Tech. 

"I've talked about going to 
Virginia Tech since 1 was in the 5th 
grade," she said. "One of our 
relatives is a researcher there, so I 
really feel like Tech is part of the 
family." The remark that followed is 
the tell-tale one: "When 1 saw Elon 
though, 1 didn't care about other 
colleges." 

While Denese is very excited 
about coming to Elon, she is 
realistic about the adjustments that 
college life requires. "I guess living 
with a stranger will be the most 
dramatic change for me," she said, 
adding: "But I think it will be very 
interesting and I'll learn a lot about 



myself in the process. 

"I'm pretty independent. My 
parents have always been very sup- 
portive," Denese noted and pro- 
bably explained the reason for her 
impressive self-confidence without 
even realizing it. 

"My dad coaches football too," 
Denese explained as the entree into 
her interest in photography. "We 
gave him a camera, but I ended up 
taking it!" she laughed. "I started 
taking photos of the football games. 
I really enjoyed being on the field 
with Dad." The two of them ended 
up sharing the camera and classes 
in photography at a nearby com- 
munity college. 

In addition to experience in 



sports photography, Denese's high 
school career included a host of dif- 
ferent activities. From yearbook 
editor to a staff position on the 
school literary magazine, coincident- 
ly named The Pendulum, she cer- 
tainly has had a taste of journalism. 
On the lighter side, Denese was a 
cheerleader and would like to be 
one at Elon. "I just love drumming 
up people's energy, creating excite- 
ment and team spirit," she said. 
That's certainly not hard to believe 
from energetic and affable Denese 
Marie DeJerf.

Angyal said. The majority are tri- 
lingual, studying Hungarian and 
Russian by requirement; English by 
choice. Angyal's students had master- 
ed English well enough to read 
Faulkner. Students generally double 
major. To do this they take between 
35 and 36, UlVi hour courses per 
semester: 12 courses in their first 
major, 12 in their second major, and 
12 in courses grounded in Marxist 
ideology. 

"The curriculum is very demand- 
ing and the students are on 
chronic overload," Angyal noted. 
Faculty, on the other hand, have a 
far more leisurely, almost relaxed 
schedule. By contrast, Angyal said 
he gained a new appreciation of how 
hard Americans work. The differ- 
ence seems to have more to do with 
environment than with anything 
inherent in the national character. 

"The Hungarians are a people liv- 
ing under foreign domination. There 
is a tendency to live for today be- 
cause tomorrow is not so certain," 
Angyal noted. Indeed the Hungar- 
ians cannot escape the reminders of 
their Soviet intruders. According to 
Angyal, their military presence is 
constant and obvious. Hungary is 
very important to the Soviets as 
the most affluent of the Eastern 
bloc nations. Its location is strategic 
to Soviet military and economic 
well-being also. 

Despite living under the Soviet 
yoke, the Hungarian people are 
warm and hospitable, Angyal 
discovered. "1 was readily incor- 
porated into the community," he 
adds, so much so in fact, that he 
calls his Hungarian visit "the 
richest four months of my life" 

"1 wish that every faculty member 
could have this opportunity," 
Angyal ad
